Why is there Amateur Radio?
The Federal Communication Commission (FCC) is the governing body when it comes to Amateur Radio. In fact an entire part of the FCC Rules- Part 97- is devoted to the amateur radio service. The five principles are (1) Recognnition and enhancement of the value of amateur service to the public as a voluntary, non commercial comunication service, particularly to providing emergency communications. (2) Continuation and extension of the amateur's proven ability to the advancement of the radio art. (3) Encouragement and improvement of the amateur service through rules which provide for advancing skills in both the communications and technical phases of the art. (4) Expansion of the existing reservoir within the amateur radio service of  trained operators, technicians and electronics experts. and (5) Continuation and extension of the amateur's unique ability to enhance international good will.
