The Future Of Amateur Radio


Many people think that the amateur radio hobby is dying and or out of date. This is simply not true. Amateur radio has a lot to offer in today’s world of Cellphones and embedded computers.
From DMR, D-STAR, IRLP, to AllStar, EchoLink, and talking through satellites, Amateur Radio is still a driving force in our modern communications infrastructure. Internet linking allows Amateur Radio Operators (Hams) to instantly talk around the world.
Satellite repeaters, including the International Space Station, allow amateurs to participate in cutting edge space sciences.

One Amateur who strongly believes in the future of the hobby is Skyler Fennell (KD0WHB). Skyler is the 2016 Amateur Radio Newsline Young Ham of the Year recipient. He attends New Mexico School Of Mining And Technology in Socorro, New Mexico.
Skyler is the president of TARA (Tech Amateur Radio Association), which is the Amateur Radio club for the school.
Skyler is looking to purchase a Service Monitor that will be used by the students in the club and the surrounding amateur community.
To help Skyler get the service monitor for the club, and for more information about the club’s activities, checkout Skyler’s
GoFundMe Page.

I'm one of the founders of JL Applied Technologies. If its technology in nature, and has existed since 1996, I've probably used it! I've used DOS, Windows 95, 98, 2000, XP, Vista, 7, and Ubuntu Linux. In 2007, I started using Ubuntu full time. I'm an amateur radio operator, and hold the call sign W0JRL. Feel free to join me on the air. If you have access to an Allstar node, dial 29997. If not, I'm on EchoLink as W0JRL-R. If you're not an amateur radio operator, you can call me on my sip server.
