Ham Radio Cartoons
Of Common Situations

I created small collection of ham radio cartoons because a significant number of you wrote to say that you had trouble finding good ones.

I hope most of the following cartoons will make you smile ;-) Some of them could make you ... think.

All illustrations below are from iStockPhoto.com .

Ham radio cartoons. Aspiring ham taking test. Aspiring amateur radio operator taking the written test to get his license.

Brings back memories for many of us :-)
Ham radio cartoons. Amateur radio op in action. 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! ;-)
