Ham Radio 100 years old at ISU

100 Years ago, amateur / ham radio was started at Iowa State University (ISU).

The fact that Iowa State was one of the first places to pay attention to this technology that ultimately revolutionized our lives in the 20th century is important because it shows that Iowa State has consistently been dedicated to being first in developing communication technologies.
