Amateur Radio and Ham-Spirit
I received my Swiss amateur radio license in December 1983 and was active until 1986 mainly on Oscar-10, 2m and 70cm E-Sporadic. After a 30 year break, I started again from scratch in March 2016.
Shack at home, remote DX-Station at 1'660m, portable QO-100 SAT-Station and all QSOs (12'000+), the 5-Band DXCC and the DXCC Challenge certificates has been made since March 2016.
We know there is no other service like ours. No fraternity on earth has the power & magic to bridge culture, nationality, distance and disparate interests like Amateur Radio does.
Amateur radio describes the use of radio frequency spectrum for purposes of non-commercial exchange of messages, wireless experimentation, radio- and IT-Projects, private recreation, radiosport such as SOTA, digital-communication such as FT8, EME (Earth-Moon-Earth), contesting, and emergency communication.
National governments regulate technical and operational characteristics of transmissions and issue individual stations licenses with an identifying call sign such as HB9RYZ.
