About

Amateur Radio is defined in the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) Radio Regulations (RR) Article 1: 1.56 Amateur service as:
A radio communication service for the purpose of self-training, intercommunication and technical investigations carried out by amateurs, that is, by duly authorized persons interested in radio technique solely with a personal aim and without pecuniary interest.

The amateur radio service is available for persons who are interested in radio communications techniques solely with a personal aim and without pecuniary interest. It presents an opportunity for individuals to self-train, communicate with other amateur radio licensees, and carry out technical investigations. The amateur service rules are designed to allow, among other things, stations in this service to make transmissions necessary to meet essential communication needs and to facilitate relief actions. Amateur radio operators have been useful in augmenting essential communication services and providing communication links when normal communication systems are overloaded or not available.
