A few of my favorite 'Ham Radio' links

American Radio Relay League  ARRL for short.  If you are interested in becoming an Amateur Radio Operator, this is one of the places to go to find out more about the hobby.  The ARRL is the largest Amateur Radio organization in the world.  They provide information, training, publications, news, and lobbying for the amateur radio community.

Cape Ann Amateur Radio Association  CAARA is one of the larger Amateur Radio Clubs in the area.  We operate several amateur radio repeaters and are active in community and public service events, provide training and licensing for both new “hams” and those looking to upgrade their skills.  OK, I’m a little prejudiced, here.  A visit to the site can be entertaining and educational, and there is a ham radio links page there, too.

Amateur radio is the premier high-tech hobby  It's enjoyed by people from all walks of life around the world.  The rules for becoming an amateur radio operator (ham) vary from country to country.  Click the link to learn a little about the hobby and how you can obtain the necessary license to operate in the United States.  Find out how easy it is to get started and where to go once you get that first license.

Did you ever wonder how many Amateur Radio Operators (Hams) live in your hometown?  Or in ANY town for that matter.  Well, there’s an online database for that.  There’s an online database now for everything, isn’t there?

Echolink is software which allows Amateur Radio stations to communicate with one another over the Internet, using voice-over-IP (VoIP) technology.  The program allows worldwide connections to be made between stations, from computer to station, or from computer to computer.  There are more than 95,000 registered users in 137 countries worldwide!

FCC  Renew/Change license info on-line at the FCC ULS.  Look up a ham on the FCC Database here.

These are a few of my favorite “Ham Radio” websites.  Some of them may be helpful, others simply entertaining.  I’ll add to the list from time-to-time, so come back and visit again.  You never know what you’ll find.  If you should run across any “broken” links, please let me know, and I’ll try to fix ’em.  If you have a favorite you would like to see here, let me know about that, too.
