A New Year, A New Hobby

Over the Christmas holidays I had conversations with friends and family about my excitement for ham radio. On a couple of occasions people would say things like "I can do that with my cell phone" when referring to different things that you can do with ham radio. This video explains some of the aspects of how amateur radio goes beyond traditional wireless communication.


"The DIY Magic of Amateur Radio," is an 8-minute video that follows some of the innovative, imaginative and fun ways "hams" use radio technology in new and creative ways. The presentation is directed toward the DIY (do it yourself) movement, which is inspiring a new generation of creators, hackers and innovators. The message should be helpful for existing members to shape the ways they understand and talk about ham radio.
