Amateur radio is still relevant today in its original form of "self training in radio." The world of radio sees communication around the world as well as competitions, whether it be national, international or from a summit of a mountain (Summits on the Air or SOTA. There are those who enjoy antenna building, constructing transceivers, test equipment and diagnosing faults and repairs or operating with the latest equipment or using their home built low power equipment.

New members to amateur radio can join a club training course and become a licensed Radio Amateur within 6 months, depending on your level of interest in this amazing hobby.

What can Amateur Radio do for me? Employers in the high technology industries often seek people who combine the theoretical understanding of electronics with the practical ability to “make it happen”. By becoming a radio amateur, and with the right interest, a lifetime of personal growth lies ahead in the field of electronics and radio communication. Many people today owe career development to their first steps in amateur radio. Why don’t YOU consider joining the many thousands who are developing their skills every day through this fascinating hobby?
