Amateur radio is still just as relevant today in its original form of self training in radio. The world of radio sees communication around the world and competitions as well whether it be national, international or from a summit of a mountain - Summits on the Air (SOTA).

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?
