Amateur Radio as a hobby…

The hobby of Amateur Radio, today more than ever, is an extension of scientific knowledge applied to telecommunications.

Industry Canada believes that Amateur Radio should be accessible, so that those who are interested in the science and art of radio communication may avail themselves of every reasonable opportunity to learn, enjoy and contribute to its progress.

The department also recognizes the necessity for Amateur Operators to have some technical and operating knowledge before being allowed on the Amateur Radio bands. To further these aims of the department The Hamilton Amateur Radio Club was formed in 1932 and continues today.

“The stated purpose of the  Club is to promote public interest in Amateur Radio communications, experimentation and the advancement of the art and science of radio.  The H.A.R.C. holds regular public meetings, offers educational courses, engages in radio sport and community activities utilizing our newsletter and social media to promote the clubs activities. The members and executive of the  H.A.R.C. promote an inclusive fraternalism, a high standard of conduct and good citizenship.”
