What is Ham Radio?

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.

It's fun, social, educational, and can be a lifeline during times of need (see ADRASEC).

Some numbers in late 2019

  • 13 609  registered Hams (13264 in2018), 
  • 376  radio-clubs (352 in2018).
  • 1052 Repeaters (958 in2018)

The number of licensed Hams is slightly lower  if compared to 2010.
