Welcome to The Active Ham

This site exists as a public service to the Amateur community. Topics span a wide range; such as APRS, Google Maps, emergency communications, programming, and Winlink 2000 to name just a few. Topics don't necessarily have to be related to Amateur Radio, but they usually are. I tend to put things here that interest me, but am not opposed to other topics - feel free to make suggestions.

There are an assortment of programs in the Downloads section and also a few articles in in the Articles section. If you wish to contribute an article, please use the Contact link (to the left) to let me know what you have in mind.
