Amateur radio, also known as Ham radio, is the use of radio frequency spectrum for purposes of non-commercial exchange of messages, wireless-experimentation,self-training,private-recreation, radiosports,contesting, and emergency communication. The term “amateur” is used to specify “a duly authorised person interested in radioelectric practice with a purely personal aim and without pecuniary interest.Amateur radio operators call themselves “radio hams” or simply “HAM.”
Amateur radio operation is fun, and that is one of the main reasons HAM do it. But ham radio can provide communication during states of emergency. Ham radio works well when all other services fail.Amateur radio operators are known as technical innovators, and have been responsible for important discoveries. For example, in the early part of the 20th century, government officials believed that all the frequencies having wavelengths shorter than 200 meters (1.5 MHz) were useless for radio communications, so they restricted radio amateurs to these frequencies. It was not long before ham radio operators discovered the truth, and were communicating on a worldwide scale using low-power transmitters. Thus the shortwave radio era began.
