+ - Radio Days Are Back: Ham Radio Licenses at an All-->

Submitted by Velcroman1
Velcroman1 (1667895) writes "The newest trend in American communication isn't another smartphone from Apple or Google but one of the elder statesmen of communication: Ham radio licenses are at an all time high, with over 700,000 licenses in the United States, according to the Federal Communications Commission. Ham radio first took the nation by storm nearly a hundred years ago. Last month the FCC logged 700,314 licenses, with nearly 40,000 new ones in the last five years. Compare that with 2005 when only 662,600 people hammed it up and you'll see why the American Radio Relay League — the authority on all things ham — is calling it a "golden age" for ham. "Over the last five years we've had 20-25,000 new hams," said Allen Pitts, a spokesman for the group."
