HAMing It Up, Redux

You're looking at one of Utah's newest HAM operators. Tonight I took the Technician test and passed without a problem. In a couple of days, I get listed on the FCC database with a shiny new call sign and I can legally start transmitting. You know, once I get my own radio.

Hey Vanessa? That's your cue to renew your license.

    So whatcha gonna do with your station? What’s your format going to be?


  2. Jesse says:

    Well… I can’t broadcast. I can only communicate with other HAMs. And it’s technically illegal to have music on the amateur airwaves. They’ll revoke your license for that.

    Interesting… I know so little about ham radio – you should educate a young dummyface stupidhead like me someday šŸ™‚

    My license is current…… kd6ilg…. I just need to get my hands on a radio.

    Is it illegal to play ANY music, or just other people’s? Could you sit and practice your harmonica?

  7. Jesse says:

    Part 97, Subpart B, Section 97.101 specifically prohibits all music. I don’t think you can even whistle a tune.

    What about dancing? Can they ban dancing like ‘Footloose’?

    I mean, you’ve GOTTA cut loose….
