Amateur Radio: 100 Years of Discovery

Back in 2000 our own beloved Jim Maxwell, W6CF (now a Silent Key) had an excellent article in QST, “Amateur Radio: 100 Years of Discovery.”   In the article Jim thoughtfully ticked off the decades and wisely concluded, “We have survived the technological challenges of the past by understanding new technologies and embracing those portions that would lead Amateur Radio forward. We have survived change and overcome adversity by working together.

When Amateur Radio began there was only one way for a ham to get started: learn Morse code, build a receiver and a spark transmitter, string up an antenna, and start tapping on the key.
Today we have a multifaceted Amateur Radio. We’re on CW and phone; SSB and FM; packet and TV; PACTOR, PSK31 and RTTY, as well as other modes, bouncing signals off the ground, off the ionosphere, and off the moon, enthusiastically working bands from almost dc to daylight. We have
ragchewers and contesters, public service communicators and experimenters, QRPers and more. Hams are active in nearly every country of the world, and at ages ranging from less than 10 years to more than 100.
Can any group with common interests be quite so diverse? In spite of that diversity, and in spite of the fact that the Amateur Radio service encompasses a very large number of special interests, it’s important to understand that we all have one common, overriding interest: to ensure that Amateur Radio not only survives, but flourishes in the century ahead. With the support of all hams everywhere our future prosperity is assured.”
