    Title 47 CFR Part 97, Part 97 - Amateur Radio Service, Subpart A - General Provisions, 97.1 Basis and purpose.
    (page 587):

    §97.1 Basis and purpose.

    [The Basis and Purpose of Amateur(Ham) Radio:]

    The rules and regulations in this part are designed to provide an amateur radio service having a fundamental purpose as expressed in the following principles:

    (a) Recognition and enhancement of the value of the amateur service to the public as a voluntary noncommercial communication service, particularly with respect to providing emergency communications.

    (b) Continuation and extension of the amateur’s proven ability to contribute to the advancement of the radio art.

    (c) Encouragement and improvement of the amateur service through rules which provide for advancing skills in both the communication and technical phases of the art.

    (d) Expansion of the existing reservoir within the amateur radio service of trained operators, technicians, and electronics experts.

    (e) Continuation and extension of the amateur’s unique ability to enhance international goodwill.


    I translate and interpret this to mean the following:


    (a) We exist, as a service, to be available to the public when needed.

    (b) We research and develop new equipment.

    (c) The rules we follow are there for our benefit.

    (d) Our expertise is so valuable that we are kept as a "national resource".

    (e) We are ambassadors to other areas(neighbors, neighborhoods, towns, counties, states, countries, continents, planets, solar systems, etc.).


    Do you agree? Do you disagree? Please, let us all know how you feel.


    JEFF-N3IFD/AECW


    P.S.: Corny or not, this needed to be said!
    P.P.S.: If you disagree, which letter(s)?[(?)]


    I don't understand the "question;" or whether it's a "troll" post.

    Those ARE the definitions, reasons, and requirements, for Amateur Radio. It's etched in the FCC rules, and reason for creation of the Amateur Service.

    WHY should there be any argument or question, and WHY does it need to be said?

    I'm afraid that's NOT included in §Part 97.1, so YMMV.

    You're not an elmer to anyone here little buddy. That noise about "Philly Guy" and the rest is all self-aggrandizement. Hey look, nobody died here and made me queen for a day, so do what you will do. Personally, I think your deck of cards has 52 "Jokers" in it but mileage may vary on that I am sure.

    "Self-aggrandizement", sayeth the Ham Genius.



    And you are right, nobody died here and made you queen for a day.

    We're still not exactly sure why that happened.
