Ham radios have been around for a long time. I remember my brother having one when we were kids. He never pursued it beyond a childhood hobby though. This is a great article. It makes me want to buy a ham radio just to see who's out there. I accessed this website and found lots of good information on what to buy and how to use it. It is very informative if you're interested in getting started.

Great article, thank you for sharing! To be honest I don't think I have ever seen the ham radio tools before because my family members are not that interested in electronics. However it is wonderful to see that people still use it today and they can even save a life using it. The man is also lucky to have friends who cares that much.
