Ham Radio Cartoons
|Aspiring amateur radio operator taking the written test to get his license.
Brings back memories for many of us :-)
|Let's be honest! We all love to tweak knobs! ;-)
There is nothing more satisfying than watching a needle swing across an amber backlit analog dial.
The more complicated the radio appears, the more satisfaction we derive out of making the "rig" work as intended. Right? Right! ;-)
|A light snack is in order after a long night chasing DX.|
|"Plumber's delight" version of a fractal antenna for HF.|
|Amateur radio enthusiast proudly demonstrating his latest linear-loaded antenna prototype.|
|Rare illustration of the first man who perfected the technique for lobbing a string over a tree.
Ham radio operators are deeply indebted to him for his technological innovation ;-)

He is taking a few practice shots before attempting to lob a rope over a tree to install his dipole.

Should have put on a safety harness before climbing that tower of yours!

|Amateur radio operator in 2020 experimenting with new mode of telecommunication or teleportation ... whichever works first! ;-)|
|Government inspector finds you responsible for the RFI that your neighbors have been complaining about.
Now you know you should have spent a few extra dollars on a low pass filter.
(P.S. No ham radio cartoons would be complete without this "sobering" reminder ;-)
|Raising funds for that new SDR transceiver you've been dreaming of.|
|Benjamin Franklin saved many ham radio operator lives by inventing the lightning rod.|
|Oops! Forgot to ground all pieces of equipment to one common ground!|
|"This is the last time you're coming home late from your ham radio club meeting"!|
|Amateur radio op gone QRT.
"It's been a lot of fun and worth every moment"!
(P.S. His club meet had finally reached quorum that night!)
That's it. Hope you enjoyed these ham radio cartoons. I know I enjoyed finding them and writing the captions for them. ;-)
