    any Amateur Radio item

    DONATE for FREE to those who can't
    afford Ham radio equipment

    Who is “HamHelpers.com”?
    Is a no fee website where you can
    Amateur Radio Equipment.
    HamHelpers.com does require an
    “FCC CALLSIGN” to Register

    HamHelpers Group
    A dedicated group of amateur radio enthusiasts
    who through Donations are able to help FCC Licensed
    operators’ who cannot afford Ham Radio equipment?

    Why did I start “HamHelpers.com”?

    Being on disability I had a lot of help starting off in the Amateur Radio Hobby. With little to no funds “HamHelpers Group” helped set up my Ham Station through the “DONATIONS” of dedicated Ham Radio enthusiasts like you. So I decided to give back to the Ham Radio hobby by joining emergency services in my area: ARES/RACES, MARS, Skywarn and being a Net Control Station Operator three times a week but I wanted to also help others like myself who want to be a Ham Radio Operator but due to circumstances beyond their control are not able to afford this amazing hobby.

    Having a website that I purchased years ago collecting dust I had an epiphany. Why not use my website to help Ham Radio Operators and Ham Radio Operator wannabes; those that for no other reason than finances cannot enjoy more than a Ham License on a wall.

    EchoLink & Peanut are great venues for talking to licensed tech’s around the world but you have to agree that nothing takes the place of a 2m or HF RIG on your desk, setting up an antenna and having your first Ham Shack to make your QSO’s.

    Why use “HamHelpers.com?

    Through “HamHelpers.com” and “HamHelpers Group” everyone can have an opportunity to enjoy the amazing Amateur Radio Hobby and no longer be an Amateur Radio wannabe like I was for years but become an Amateur Radio Operator like I eventually became now through the help of the HamHelpers Group!
    Ham Radio equipment to
    Licensed Operators with no
    HamHelpers.com also Welcomes
    Operators who are looking to find equipment

    I placed a Chat Window on HamHelpers.com to help with any questions a licensed Ham Radio Operator might have about selling, buying, trading, donating or setting up your User Account.

    Im sorry buy like life you have to work for the things you want and need. Amateur radio is not a necessity like your power and water. There has been many a individual posting adverts on the different ham forums begging for ham gear cause they don't have the money $$. Most of us work pretty hard for the things we have these days and I for one am not giving donations to somebody to get on the air. Especially without a ham ticket. Furthermore, be ready for an on sought of cber types if it doesn't require a FCC licence. Bottom line the Amateur radio service was not intended to be "free". It was intended for people to put in some work to get a lisc, build gear and understand electronics to further communications and come up with new ideas. That did not include new ideas like, ham radio is a sport, or some liberal we are the world type give away and everyone deserves to have a lisc. and have a radio setup.

    The Amateur’s Code
    by Paul M. Segal, W9EEA (1928)

    The Radio Amateur is:

    CONSIDERATE….. never knowingly operating in such a way as to lessen the pleasure of others.

    LOYAL….. offering loyalty, encouragement and support to other amateurs, local clubs and the American Radio Relay League, through which Amateur Radio in the United States is represented nationally and internationally.

    PROGRESSIVE….. with knowledge abreast of science, a well built and efficient station, and operation beyond reproach.

    FRIENDLY….. with slow and patient operation when requested, friendly advice and counsel to the beginner, kindly assistance, co-operation and consideration for the interests of others. These are the hallmarks of the amateur spirit.

    BALANCED….. Radio is an advocation, never interfering with duties owed to family, job, school or community.

    PATRIOTIC….. with station and skill always ready for service to country and community.

    The blurb states an FCC callsign is required. What if a non-US ham wishes to register?

    Am I missing something here? Can you not do this via an established resource like QRZ.COM? And if you get people who need real help there are the QRZ Forums and local QCWA Chapters who do much the same thing in person. Plus other established sites like EHam. I know these are all reliable, honest, trustworthy and they get no revenue from this, Unlike eBay which does charge fees and is more buyer beware. But for some people and things it fills a need. I hate to rain on somebody's parade but I think the wheel has already been invented.

    Good luck. I know you put a lot of time into it so I don't mean to give you a hard time but ...

    Asking for credit card info on a non https page is really not okay.

    Posting that form back to your own server is almost certainly not PCI compliant regardless of how you process the card info. If you store the card info in a database or a file on your server then that's very bad.

    I know it's "optional" but it's not clear to me why you're asking for a credit card. If it's for donations then a PayPal button would be much better.

    Credit Card should not have been enabled and has been turned off.
    PAYPAL is the accepted online method of payment for transactions for the security of both the seller & buyer

    These guys do great work. Helping folks get on the air is not always about financials. Sometimes it's about trying out some gear and learning how fun it can be ...especially true of today's "baofeng on a belt" ham. Here is a means of helping to get folks to the next level in ham radio. Great job to the Ham Helpers.
