Amateur Radio – often called ham radio, is both a hobby and a service that uses various types of radio communications equipment to communicate with other radio amateurs for public service, recreation and self-training. A participant is called an amateur radio operator, or a ham.
Amateur radio operators enjoy personal wireless communications with each other and are able to support their communities with emergency and disaster communications, when necessary, while increasing their personal knowledge of electronics and radio theory.
The National Telecommunications Regulatory Commission is not only responsible for licensing amateur radio operators, but is also responsible for regulating the service; this includes guiding users on international best practice and ensuring that there is compliance with the ITU rules and regulations
