Amateur Radio (ham radio) is a popular hobby and service that brings people, electronics and communication together. People use ham radio to talk across town, around the world, or even into space, all without the Internet or cell phones. It’s fun, social, educational, and is often a lifeline during times of disaster.

For more information about the hobby see the Radio Amateurs of Canada website:
