What is HAM Radio

Amateur (HAM) radio, often called ham radio, is both a hobby and a service in which participants, called "hams," use various types of radio communications equipment to communicate with other radio amateurs for public services, recreation and self-training.
Amateur (HAM) radio operators enjoy personal (and often worldwide) wireless communications with each other and are able to support their communities with emergency and disaster communications if necessary, while increasing their personal knowledge of electronics and radio theory. An estimated three million people throughout the world are regularly involved with amateur (HAM) radio. Amateur (HAM) radio operators use various modes of transmission to communicate. Voice transmissions are most common, with some, such as frequency modulation (FM) offering high quality audio, and others, such as single sideband (SSB) offering more reliable communications, often over long distance, when signals are marginal and bandwidth is restricted, without sacrificing audio quality. Over the past century amateur (HAM) radio operators have contributed to ourunderstanding of radio communications, devised entirely new radio communication technologies, combined pre-existing technologies in innovative new ways, and developed operational procedures that have largely defined the way in which communication by radio is carried out. Amateur (HAM) radio has played a fundamental role in the development of radio and telecommunications technology, and it continues to do so today. The user community at these locations will be empowered with technical skills on a continuous basis and will become a knowledge and information resource centre for served organizations. The radio amateurs in the country will also have an opportunity to utilize these services for their communication requirements as well as emergency communication use.
Awareness on the use of amateur (HAM) radio communications will contribute to human resource development in the area. The Ham volunteers contributing to this project will be trained technically and equipped with adequate support to be available for most disaster mitigation and management activities in the region.
