18 April - World Amateur Radio Day
You can talk to radio amateurs in any country in the world without wire connection, wireless from you to them. ARISS stands for Amateur Radio on the International Space Station. Ham operators set up their equipment and people, for example students, can communicate with astronauts in space. While ham radio as a backup form of communications is well known, that there is an internet via ham radio is less well known. The first is AMPRNet.
Many experienced operators volunteer to offer support and guidance for newbies. Elmer is the term for a Radio Amateur mentor.
Although hams use many different modes of communication such as voice, digital and even television, the original mode was Morse code. In order to save time, many abbreviations were created by Morse users and 73 is used to sign off with a friendly good-bye. Of course, if you are talking with that special someone a different number is used, 88, which means “love and kisses”.
