About

Amateur Radio, do you know what it is, are you curious? Amateur Radio or Ham Radio as it is often called is the use of radio frequencies and radios of course to talk with people across the street, around the world and event into space. Amateur Radio is a great hobby but is also a great service to your community. Amateur Radio Operators can belong to groups such as ARES or RACES, both of which are developed to help provide emergency communications through amateur radio in the event of a local or man-made disaster. So if you are looking for a new hobby that can also be of a service to your community look no further, contact us and let us explain how you can become a licensed amateur radio operator. As just a hobby or a service to Sumter County, Florida check us out and see if this is for you.
