 An amateur radio operator is someone who uses equipment at an amateur radio station to engage in two-way personal communications with other amateur operators on radio frequencies assigned to the amateur radio service.

 Amateur radio operators have been granted an amateur radio license by a governmental regulatory authority after passing an examination on applicable regulations, electronics, radio theory, and radio operation. 

As a component of their license, amateur radio operators are assigned a call sign that they use to identify themselves during communication. Amateur radio operators are also known as radio amateurs or hams. The term "ham" is a nickname for amateur radio operators. Emergency Amateur Radio Club - Hawaii would like to assist Oahu residents in obtaining or upgrading their FCC Amateur Radio licenses.
