Letter: Ham radio in Central Kentucky

Harry Mack writes:
Yes, Ham radio exists here in central KY. It actually exists worldwide. First, for the uninitiated, just because someone is talking into a microphone does not make it Ham radio. What many truckers use is what used to be CB radio and is in no way connected to Ham radio.

Many of us also belong to our national organization, the American Radio Relay League. Here is that web page:
The above should get you off to a start and maybe another Ham will add more comments.
