There are certainly numerous sites on the internet that are completely devoted to amateur radio, and have far more information. But DSLR is a community that has long offered its members a well-behaved, informative atmosphere, and there are many here already involved in this hobby. Amateur radio enthusiasts, "Hams" are well-known for their willingness to help others get started in the hobby, and DSLR epitomizes this attitude among its members.
With so many members already participating in ham radio, and the proliferation of software and other internet based applications to amateur radio, it just makes sense to have a forum here to discuss, explore, and introduce the hobby to others.
