The Journey Through Amateur Radio - Talk by Roland Turner

Description

For a century, amateur radio operators or “hams” have built and operated personal radio stations for recreation, long-distance communication, self-education and public service. A decade ago, the hobby appeared to be in terminal decline because of the near-universal availability of mobile internet and smartphones; yet today there are more licensed hams than ever before.

This talk follows one man's journey from talking around the world as a 14-year-old Boy Scout to his current project to bounce radio signals off the moon. Roland Turner describes how the evolution of radio affected hams, and explores the relationship between the appearance of the maker movement and the resurgence of amateur radio.
