SIMPLEX V60 : 146.550 My Calling Channel (Echolink, CW, SSTV, Digital Master)

WELCOME...Thank you for visiting my Blog, just relax, layback and enjoy my Amateur Radio Blog.

This what we called a "Ham Radio"...

A radio communications service for the purpose of self-training, intercommunication, and technical investigations carried out by amateurs, that is, duly authorized persons interested in radio technique solely with a personal aim and without pecuniary interest.

Ham radio is an international fraternity that transcends the barriers of nationality, race, age, sex, and class. Whenever you take to the air as a ham, you never know who you might find to talk to. It might be an old friend you've known for years; it might be a new friend you haven't met before. Why not join the millions around the world who already have their ham license? They would all like to say hello to you!
