Amateur radio, also known as ham radio, is the use of radio frequency spectrum for purposes of non-commercial exchange of messages, wireless experimentation, self-training, private recreation, radiosport, contesting, and emergency communication. The term "amateur" is used to specify "a duly authorised person interested in radioelectric practice with a purely personal aim and without pecuniary interest" (either direct monetary or other similar reward) and to differentiate it from commercial broadcasting, public safety (such as police and fire), or professional two-way radio services (such as maritime, aviation, taxis, etc.).
This short video is designed to give an overview of amateur radio in the UK, and how to get started in the hobby. It's been produced as part of training material to promote amateur radio by www.essexham.co.uk

Romania is a country located at the crossroads of Central, Eastern, and Southeastern Europe. It borders the Black Sea to the southeast, Bulgaria to the south, Ukraine to the north, Hungary to the west, Serbia to the southwest, and Moldova to the east. It has a predominantly temperate-continental climate. With a total area of 238,397 square kilometres (92,046 sq mi), Romania is the 12th largest country and also the 7th most populous member state of the European Union, having almost 20 million inhabitants. Its capital and largest city is Bucharest, and other major urban areas include Cluj-Napoca, Timișoara, Iași, Constanța, Craiova, and Brașov.
It's not just a journey, not just an adventure, just as Peter Hurley is not only a foreigner coming to Romanian lands. An Irishman, who loves this country, has traveled in 2012, on foot, from Sapanta to the Peasant's Museum in Bucharest. He then wrote a book about the people who welcomed him and showed him hospitality with nothing to ask in return. In his journey, step by step, Peter Hurley discovers what the real Romania is, the country who opened him with open arms. The Irishman has recounted the trip together with the Agerpres Video team.
Located on the Balkan Peninsula, Romania is a country of contrasts. The former Soviet Bloc country has, over the years, belonged to the Romans who gave the country its name, the Hungarians and the Ottomans. It is filled with quaint old towns, mountain resorts that offer great skiing, and a burgeoning art community. It’s most famous citizen, however, may be the vampire Dracula, a fictional character found in Transylvania. Here’s a look at the best places to visit in Romania.
This is a trip in June 2016 travelling through the major towns in Romania, a total of 1,700kms. I was pleasantly surprised by how beautiful the country is. We started by going east towards the Danube delta where we saw the most amazing cloud formation before the storm. The seafood in that area was so fresh and delicious. We then headed inland towards the mountains and explored beautiful fairy tale castles. The architecture of the buildings and churches in the towns are all so different and ornate. The places we stayed in were all reasonably priced and the food absolutely sumptuous. Romania is highly recommended for a great value holiday destination. You will not be disappointed.
