Amateur radio opperators, sometimes referred to as "Hams", are a group of radio
operators that can be found world wide.
It is a hobby that is enjoyed by many people that have an interest in radio and electronics. The fact that not just anyone can walk up and obtain their amateur radio licence attempts to keep the "ratbags" off the air. Although this only keeps the honest people off amateur radio.
To get your licence, an exam involving basic electronics and also a regulations exam have to be passed to obtain the basic licence. If you do not have this licence, then you run the risk of being tracked down and your equiptment take off you and a fine imposed.
