Why modern makers are bringing back ham radio
#1
More than a hundred years ago, a few intrepid amateurs began experimenting with a new means of communications known then as wireless. These protohackers - soon to be known as hams - for etymologically obscure reasons - began building their own electronics gear, hoping to use it to communicate with others. By the early 1920s, amateur radio operators were talking with and even transmitting images to complete strangers on the other side of the world.
