Please tell me about ham radio. This thread on the blue
about the protests in Egypt contains a number of comments about ham radio and its utility in situations where the Internet is unavailable. Assume I know nothing about equipment or the process of becoming an operator (because this is true).

(I put this in the sports/hobbies category because that's how I've always thought of ham and shortwave radio enthusiasts, but I know there's more to it than that.)
