What is HAM radio and Why should I get my HAM radio license?

Ham radio is a fun and exciting hobby that allows you to communicate with people from all over the world using radio waves.  The Technician class license is the first step to becoming a licensed amateur radio operator. It is an entry-level license that provides access to all amateur radio frequencies above 30 MHz, including the very popular 2-meter band. With this license, you can communicate with other amateur radio operators, participate in contests, and even provide emergency communication services during natural disasters. The best part is that you can do all of this while having fun and making new friends. So, if you’re interested in exploring the world of amateur radio, the Technician class license is the perfect place to start! 📻🎉
