WikiProject Amateur radio
WikiProject Amateur radio is a WikiProject that aims to improve Wikipedia's coverage of amateur radio. Its goals are the improvement of Wikipedia articles related to amateur radio, maintenance of the amateur radio category and its sub-categories, and production and maintenance of templates for amateur radio–related topic identification.
Project members should ensure that articles are
referenced and written from a neutral point of view— amateur radio operators should resist the urge to resort to boosterism or to write articles from a local or personal point of view.
Please help this project evolve by providing your own modifications, comments and suggestions. (Don't know where to start? Leave a message on the project talk page.)

26 July 2008 Amateur radio in India is listed on FAC =Nichalp «Talk»=
22:01, 27 March 2008 (UTC) The amateur radio article has been nominated for good article status.-- Kharker ( talk) 22:06, 27 March 2008 (UTC)
19:42, 26 February 2008 (UTC) I've updated the Template:WikiProject Amateur radio template to support the assignment of class and importance, as well as tagging articles that need urgent attention or infoboxes. This functionality allows the assessment table to be generated. Lots of articles in the project still need to be assessed for both article quality and importance. Doing so will help the project identify important articles in need of improvement. Please help!-- Kharker ( talk) 19:43, 26 February 2008 (UTC)
20:38, 25 February 2008 (UTC) I've converted the project page to a Turnkey Project. -- Kharker ( talk) 20:38, 25 February 2008 (UTC)
18:21, 13 February 2008 (UTC) Vintage amateur radio has been listed as a Engineering and technology good article under the good article criteria. - LuckyLouie ( talk) 11:12, 30 March 2008 (UTC)
