Members of the Tamaqua Wireless Association and S.A.R.A., Schuylkill Amateur Repeater Association, had their amateur, also called HAM, radio equipment on display for everyone to see during the recent Schuylkill County Fair.

An estimated two million people throughout the world are regularly involved with amateur radio as well as using Morse code in conjunction.

Radiotelegraphy using Morse code (also known as "CW" or "continuous wave") is an activity dating to the earliest days of radio.

It is the wireless extension of land line (wire based) telegraphy developed by Samuel Morse and was the predominant real time long-distance communication method of the 19th century.
