What is Ham Radio
New video from the ARRL
Great video and very TRUE
Just need to post it so non amateurs can see it
Just need the ARRL to bring on more sunspots.
The immediate use is for Field Day, to explain and 'sell' ham radio to non hams who drop by. Their attention span will be taxed beyond around 2 minutes. That's why you have the clipping of breath pauses on the audio.
There is an undercurrent of growth and club organization happening in ham radio which is both pleasantly surprising and a spells great things or our future.
ARRL, along with others, is asking: who is this new audience and how do we 'sell' to their interest?

Eu encontrei uma família juntos no rádio amador. Convido todos a conhecer o meu blog sobre rádios.

Excellent video and it transposes well to other amateur communities around the world. As mentioned above, it is vitally important to keep engaging those outside the hobby - special event stations, construction events, emergency and other services support (RAYNET here in the UK) etc. I left the hobby for well over 20 years until around a year ago and the one thing that hadn't hadn't changed was the conviviality amongst amateur radio enthusiasts and their willingness to share information.
Excellent use of time (short and a great overview, One of the better things that the ARRL has done in a while.
I was interested in 2-way radio, crystal radio sets for kits, SWL (JAZZ music from Australia late night), more SWL on the grey line, Technician Class license, SWL HCJB Ecuador, HF SWL, General Class license "Trail Friendly Radio" and portable antennas QRP.
I see ARRL Field Day, as an excellent opportunity for exposure to these things.
Each ARRL Field Day I have attended, or helped, was all about contest points, with almost no interaction with the public.
I think ARRL Field Day is an excellent opportunity for interaction with the public.
..yes, have watchful participants looking after theft.
..but, have tables with 2-way radios (even FRS, etc.) and tables with crystal radio sets (oatmeal box, and kits sold) and tables with CW and SSB "Trail Friendly Radios" for SOTA, POTA, etc. and have tables for SWL,and have tables for SDR and digital, and have AMSAT and ISS posters.
..and make presentations at elementary and middle school.
It is this reaching out that keeps the interest in "how things work" vital ..in my opinion.
I saw it first at cub scouts.
