Prominent radio amateurs
Among the first radio amateurs are Roberto
Landell de Moura,
James Clerk Maxwell, Heinrich Hertz, Alexander Stepanowitsch Popow snd
Guglielmo Marconi. Even though the term "radio amateur" did not yet exist at the time
they were the first to get involved with radio technology out of personal inclinations
and interest in radio technology.
As you can see I am in best company as a radio amateur.
