All we hear is Radio Amateur

18th Apr, 2012 | Posted by in Blog

Amateur Radio Day has its origins in “areas where communications are little to non-existent”, so it’s a damn shame I don’t own one as my internet connection constantly cuts out, the landline is crackly and my mobile network coverage is patchy at best. 

Plus my carrier pigeon flew into a wind turbine.

I’ve always wondered about amateur radio; I mean, if I were to get one, what are the chances of someone else not only having one and being on the same frequency, but being… er… on air (?) at the same time?

Still, I do know more about the subject than when I was a kid – back then I thought ham radio was what butchers listened to.
