Historical Backgrounds

Ham Radio is one of the most basic methods of communication today and one of the most fault tolerant; something we like to term “Foundation Technology”. Yet, it seems that every time we start to believe that Ham Radio is going away due to improvements in technology – something pops up to prove us wrong.

We have noticed spikes during the fall of Communist Russia, growth in China, South America, Africa, during Iraq War (V1.0), after the 9/11 Tragedy and even now Iraq War (v2.0) – seems when communication is needed Ham Radio comes to the rescue.

On this pages, we will add links to other sites and blogs that discuss the core attributes of Ham Radio communications from its history to its future as a Foundation Technology.
