There will be some visitors to these pages who ask "What is Amateur Radio?", well rather than try to give an explanation here, the best method will probably be to make use of the many web pages that have already been written to answer the question.
Using a series of links it is hoped that an elementary explanation of Amateur Radio can be given, enough hopefully, to whet the appetite and spark a need to know more.....

An explanation from the Radio Society of Great Britain
An explanation from the American Radio Relay League
An explanation of the Australian licence structure from the Wireless Institute of Australia
