What Can Amateur Radio
Operators Do?

Ham radio operators use two-way radio stations from their homes, cars, boats and outdoors to make hundreds of friends around town and around the world. They communicate with each other using voice, computers, and Morse code. Some hams bounce their signals off the upper regions of the atmosphere, so they can talk with hams on the other side of the world. Other hams use satellites. Many use hand-held radios that fit in their pockets.Hams exchange pictures of each other using television. Some also like to work on electronic circuits, building their own radios and antennas. A few pioneers in Amateur Radio have even contributed to advances in technology that we all enjoy today. There are even ham-astronauts who take radios with them on space shuttle missions and thrill thousands of hams on earth with a call from space!

Using even the simplest of radio setups and antennas, amateurs communicate with each other for fun, during emergencies, and even in contests. They handle messages for police and other public service organizations during all kinds of emergencies including:

  • Hurricanes
  • Earthquakes
  • Tornadoes and floods
  • Motorist accidents
  • Fires and chemical spills
  • Search and rescues

Personal Information

My Name is Nabil KHAYAT, I was born in Tripoli - Lebanon on 27 April 1965 . Amateur Radio is my favorite hobby and I share the same enthusiastic with my brother Samir OD5SK

 

About my city Tripoli - Lebanon

From the earliest times Tripoli in North Lebanon was an unusual city due to its configuration for it was not one city but " three cities in one", hence its name Tripoli or the "Tri-city". Built on a rocky promontory on the East Mediterranean cost. Its geographical and strategic position was further enhanced by the presence of offshore islands and natural ports. Tripoli thus inevitably played and still playing a predominant role in political and economic developments in the region and the Middle East for over two millennia.
