Just a few short years ago, lots of people thought that the hobby of ham radio would be almost completely dead by now, but the opposite has happened — ham radio is officially more popular than ever, and nearly a million people in the US have an amateur radio license. Many people thought that the internet would kill amateur radio, but it actually helped it grow, by increasing the number of things you can do with a ham radio license, and by making the information on how to do it accessible to all.

In order to pursue the hobby of ham radio, a person needs a license from the federal government.

Technician is the entry level license.
