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 viewamateur 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.)



10 February 2017 Hi all, new WikiProject member here. I'm creating userspace drafts for RFinder and CHIRP. Any help with categorization and finding reliable sources, or any other editing help, would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! —danhash (talk) 17:30, 10 February 2017 (UTC)

17 October 2015 Hi all. I've created the page Fldigi and am trying to get it completed. Would appreciate people taking a look at it, adding and fixing as they can. On Monday, the project gets some free advertising and we are expecting plenty of traffic from people looking up the software 73's -- kf4yfd (talk) 14:19, 17 October 2015 (UTC)

1 October 2008 All amateur band articles moved from the form "x meters" or "x centimeters" to "x-meter band" or "x-centimeter band". See WP:HAM talk page for details and discussion. /Ninly (talk) 21:56, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

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)
