It’s true! Our microwave oven cooks
by using radio waves. That’s why it’s
so important that Amateur Radio
operators learn how to take precautions
to send – or
- their radio
signals in a way that no one gets hurt.
Like our microwave

long time and
we’ve had years
to make it safe.
Amateur Radio got
its real start just
after the year 1900…
Today, within the frequencies allocated for legal amateur use, there are recommended
These are agreed recommendations for the use of particular frequencies for different
types of activity such as: long distance communications (DX), mobile use from a car or
bicycle, satellite communications, making initial contact, etc. There are also suggested
frequencies for different types of signals such as voice transmissions, Morse Code (CW),
digital modes, slow scan television, images etc. Band Plans are not legally binding.
In the early days
