What are some of the things YOU can do in Amateur Radio??

Post by K0SDD-Stephen on Fri Feb 20, 2009 3:04 am

What are some of the things YOU can do in Amateur Radio?? How about:

  • Communicating with people around the Front Range or all the way around the world
  • Using orbiting satellites to speak with others, bouncing your signals off of the moon, or even reflecting your signals off of the vaporized contrails of meteors (seriously!)
  • Preparing and participating in Emergency Communications to help your city during a disaster or chasing storms and providing on the spot info about severe weather
  • Speaking with astronauts in the orbiting space shuttle or International Space Station, or literally developing the next generation of telecommunications methods and devices
  • Sound interesting?

Take a look at a couple of videos on YouTube.com to see some of the acivities that are possible with Ham Radio:

  • Various ham radio activities you can find during a 'Field Day':



  • Amateur Radio presentation with Walter Cronkite (you'll see the Colorado Hayman fire and pictures from the Divide and Woodland Park area):



  • Still Interested?

The Pikes Peak Radio Amateur Association (PPRAA) can help you get there with training and guidance that will get you to your Amateur Radio License and into the world of Ham Radio.

Once there, the PPRAA can help you expand your horizons, answer your questions, and introduce you to like-minded people who share your passion.

Come join the fun!

Send an email to the PPRAA (ppraa@ppraa.org) or visit our website at www.ppraa.org and we can help you get started!
