Amateur Radio is a lot of things to lots of people, at its core however, it is simply radio communications carried out by hobbyists. The commonality among this community of people is a basic knowledge of radio technology, regulations, operating techniques, and a license issued to each individual by the Federal Communications Commission.  The term “amateur” is not a description of the skill set of the individual, but rather it indicates that this type of radio communication is not to be used for commercial or profitable reasons.
