The activity of amateur radio is mostly unknown to the general public who are often surprised it actually survives in this internet, mobile phone and digital age. The possibilities for young people through amateur radio are enormous for the tech savvy among them who want to explore and learn.

The older generation may have a stereotypical view remembered by having a neighbour in his shack or from a portrayal in a movie scene. British comedian Tony Hancock and his famous Half Hour, 'The Radio Ham?, continues to repeat the old but is far removed from modern amateur radio.

Most other activities seek to be part of the community, so they'e better understood and recognised. So should amateur radio, particular since it is now easily accessed and enjoyed.

The Wireless Institute of Australia (WIA) considers promotion of the hobby to be very worthwhile with plenty of discussion on the topic by the WIA Directors. The WIA has announced the PR4AmateurRadio Expo, to be held on April 11-13, 2014, which will concentrate the publicity effort and harness the involvement of its affiliates.

Now is the time for all to start and think how to be involved with the PR4AmateurRadio Expo. Those taking part need to commit up 12 hours on that weekend. More detail will be available in due course.
