Happy World Amaetur Radio Day: The First Technology-Based Social Network
According to www.arrl.org: Amateur Radio: The First Technology-Based Social Network" is the theme of this year's celebration. It is indeed the most authetic way for technology fans all over the world to gather, share, and communicate. Till today, amateur has always been around to provide emergency communications during natural disasters, such as tornados, hurricanes, and even the world trade center disaster on 911... and, who are the ones behind the radios and pumping out morse code and be the hero behind the scene? Engineers.
Besides the practical usage, engineers are also proud of the efficiency of their finely tuned antenna that allows them to send/receive good quality morse code with ultra low power, they can even use old tube based equipment and maintain them in good shape ----- To me, they are sincerely smart heros. Amateur radio is the foudation of tens of advances in radio/communication theories. Without the evolvement of amateur radio, we will not be where we at today, with all the fancy social networks, cell phones, etc.
So, here, cheers to all the Amateur Radio Engineers!!
