Almost every radio amateur I personally know also share the passion I have – Photography, Okay theres a few that are not, but the majority seem to be into photography in a big way.

Me, personally Ive been doing photography since way before becoming a radio amateur (ham).

Having said that, when I go on location or in the wilderness I always take a dualband handheld radio with me, in case I need any emergency assistance. – Its happened.

Penzance – Market Jew Street, I put in a call on 2m to a local who was monitoring and the police came, he too is a ham, – small town so I was grateful someone was monitoring.

I can’t for the life of me work out the connection, can anyone else solve why the two are so often connected ? ham radio and photography ?
