Misc SARC Questions
What exactly is Ham Radio?
FCC's Amateur Radio page
for the official government definition of
ham radio. This also lists the different classes of licenses available, and
the requirements for each class. If you have a problem with the legal
definition, we would be glad to help answer your questions personally, and
help you get licensed if you're interested. (See our home page for more info.)
You can use the "BACK" arrow on
your browser to come back to this page when you're done at the FCC's site.
What is "Part 97"?
You see lots of references to "Part 97" when reading anything about the rules
and regulations for amateur radio. "Part 97" is actually part of the 47CFR (Number
47 in the "Code of Federal Regulations"), a huge set of books defining all sorts of laws
for the federal government. Part 97 is the specific section that defines the
laws regarding amateur radio operation for U.S. hams. While the ARRL sells a
book that tries to put Part 97 into plain english, you can
read the actual text of Part 97 here.
What frequencies are allowed for amateurs?
