What is Amateur Radio?

Amateur Radio operators have at their fingertips the ability to directly contact fascinating people they never meet who live in distant places they´ll never visit.

Amateur Radio is a global hobby that promote international goodwill - there are no international or political boundaries.

My start with Amateur Radio

On January 11, 1980, I became a shortwavelistener (SWL) with the signal SM0-6596.

Later the same year, August 14 1980, I got my first amateur radio license with callsign SM0LPO. Eleven days later I turned 14 years old.
