The best ways to learn about Amateur Radio is to talk to Hams face-to-face. Hams take pride in their ability to “Elmer” (teach) newcomers the ropes to get them started in the hobby. Amateur Radio operators come from all walks of life; doctors, students, kids, politicians, truck drivers, movie stars, missionaries and even your average neighbor next door. They're of all ages, sexes, income levels and nationalities. Whether through Morse Code on an old brass telegraph key, voice communication on a hand-held radio or computerized messages transmitted via satellite, all Hams use radio to reach out to the world. Whether you're a seasoned Ham or just wanting to get into Amateur Radio, the Sevier County Amateur Radio Society is Club to join !
