This is a quote from a book on amateur radio written nearly half a century ago. But the sentiment is still correct.
Amateur radio offers everyone a great technical hobby, with opportunities for growing your own technical capability, and having fun at the same time.
Amateur radio also provides valuable public service at times of emergency, by providing communication facilities when all else fails.
