Amateur Radio

Amateur Radio, popularly known as HAM Radio, is a scientific hobby of wireless communication. It is a hobby of self training, intercommunication and investigation in worldwide radio communications by means of private two-way radio conducted by duly authorised person without any pecuniary interest. This hobby has been in existence right from the days when Acharya Jagadish chandra Bose demonstrated to the unbelieving world that it was possible to instantaneously send a message from one place to another without the use of wires and thus was born "wireless" communication that we take for granted today.
