A CDE Definition
Using voice over IP (VoIP) over the Internet to connect licensed amateur radio stations (ham radios) to each other around the world. Developed in 2002 by Jonathan Taylor, EchoLink greatly extends the reach of ham operators. Only licensed radio operators are authorized to use the software. See ham.
An amateur radio operator. The term's origin is uncertain, but most likely came from early, pre-radio days, when Morse-code operators were referred to as "ham-fisted" and called "hams." Anecdote places the origin as the first initials of "Hertz," "Ampere" and "Marconi," the originators of radio technology, but the term was used before Marconi's time. See amateur radio.
