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, radiosport , 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;" [1] either direct monetary or other similar reward and to differentiate it from commercial broadcasting , public safety such as police and fire , or professional two-way radio services such as maritime, aviation, taxis, etc. The amateur radio service amateur service and amateur-satellite service is established by the International Telecommunication Union ITU through the Radio Regulations. National governments regulate technical and operational characteristics of transmissions and issue individual station licenses with a unique identifying call sign , which must be used in all transmissions. Amateur operators must hold an amateur radio license which is obtained by passing a government test demonstrating adequate technical radio knowledge and legal knowledge of the host government's radio regulations.

Frequency Allocations

FCC will take away another ham band in - K0LWC

Say goodbye to another amateur radio band. Ham radio operators should expect this to occur sometime in Operators are doing moonbounce operations, and other microwave experimenters are active on the band. The 9-centimeter band provides 24 channels on 3. AREDN mesh networks have proven to be useful in emergency situations.

Amateur Tool Kit

The FCC has never designated mode-specificsubbands in the meter amateur band. Instead, operators are asked tovoluntarily adhere to the ARRL band plan, revised this past summer, whichrecommends a lower limit of kHz for SSB operation. Hollingsworth asked each to respond to allegations fromseveral other operators that their SSB transmissions deliberately interferedwith attempts by others to operate on CW between and kHz. Copiesof the complaints were sent to all three operators.
Amateur radio frequency allocation is done by national telecommunication authorities. Globally, the International Telecommunication Union ITU oversees how much radio spectrum is set aside for amateur radio transmissions. Individual amateur stations are free to use any frequency within authorized frequency ranges; authorized bands may vary by the class of the station license. Radio amateurs use a variety of transmission modes, including Morse code , radioteletype , data, and voice.
