Hank's Digital Domain
Hello and welcome to Hank's Digital Domain. This site is dedicated to my favorite hobby - ham radio. I have articles on ham radio operation, ham radio equipment, my projects, my take on the hobby, and many references, manuals, tips, settings, and other things related to the gear that I have. I hope you find this site helpful and enjoy it as much as I do building it.
So what is ham radio? Ham radio is a fun and exciting hobby that allows you to talk to people all over the world. Through the use of radios, antennas, and other accessories, you can talk to local friends with a walkie talkie (known to hams as an HT), talk to people in other cities while traveling in your car, and talk to people all over the world.
Like many hobbies, ham radio has many aspects to explore. Some people like talking to other countries on the HF bands. Some people like talking local with HTs, some like talking with digital modes, some like operating in radio contests, some like operating through our own satellites, and others like bouncing their signals off the moon to talk halfway around the world. So you see, ham radio isn't just big radios and big towers, it has many different areas that you can actively participate.
