When you're left alone in space during the shutdown - Chris Hadfield
Shamelessly remade because 200MHz isn't an amateur band and 1.5M isn't enough.
Radio. You’re thinking of a radio.
I embedded a Raspberry Pi into the back of an old monitor and now have a self-contained Ham Clock
ARRL: we need to attract younger hams to the hobby and increase diversity. Also ARRL:
Mods are asleep, upvote ham radio
I'm 16 and I passed my Technician and General in one go, looking forward to getting my callsign soon
Sometimes even the best of us struggle with making proper radio calls. I made a helpful poster to study to make sure you don't sound like a dufus when you key that mic.
Got my technician license nearly a year ago and I love listening to my radios yet I haven't transmitted one word cause I'm too shy.
Got my hands on a portable antenna tower. Can't wait to use it.
This is dog, over.
For the guys saying that memes have nothing to do with radio, this one is for you.
Went to a small hamfest today. Came back with a nice little upgrade.
What did 2G cause then?
Yes yes. I get it now.
Thought this meme would be appropriate here

Just bought this bad boy. My first solid state HF rig!
In case you were all wondering
3D printed a custom center console for my VHF and CB radios!
A gentleman in my uncle’s club passed away and Susan, the man’s widow, asked that his equipment go to a new ham. Thanks Susan, Ken’s equipment will be well used.

Is it over? Over.

I like HTs and I can not lie- You other amateurs can't deny - That when a new ones out with a new feature set - and a display in your face - You get sprung, want to key up tough.

My Elmer's Ham Shack. Yes... All of the radios are hooked up and they all work.
Finally got around to making a logo of sorts for myself. Hope it gives you a giggle.
This IS the future of amateur radio.
Just snagged my first CW contact on my first big girl radio 😎
Can we get some support here?
75 meter bingo
SO MANY HAMS got into the hobby from this store alone ...
Did you know the left foot rest in some Jeeps carries this Morse code message: ROCKS RIVERS SNOW SAND? Such a cool Easter egg. Are you a ham who owns a Jeep?
These works well.

Got the new tower up this weekend. 70 feet to the tip now. Diamond X700 dual bander. 2m simplex is a much better experience now. I hope Imgur doesn't upload the pic sideways like in the preview...
Found this in another sub
First hamfest of the year in my area Saturday
The Real Problem...

/u/W2AEW featured in July's QST magazine!
I built new field bag inserts for HF radio and photography, so I can use a pre-packed backpack and just switch out the padded insert for that day's activities. This is my radio kit. It’s more secure and protective than the Condor insert from a couple months ago.
