amateur radio 101

In the beginning there was darkness and then a big bang happened and there were electro-magnetic(and radio) waves. and they have been here ever since. (you thought i was going to give more history, right? If you want more click here: History)

There are five things you need to know about with amateur radio:

  1. the radio;
  2. the power supply
  3. the antenna;
  4. connecting cables or cords
  5. Etiquette.

Everything else is just superfluous.
