There are times when you want to do something different, to energize and spice up a boring night.The nights are free of the noises that are associated with the activities of daytime, the night kind of shuts out the noises of the world that are at war with you during the day and are trying to drown your inner voice with their volume.
It is fun doing minute adjustment to the dials or buttons of the ham radio in search of a conversation. It is lively and you get to talk to the persons maintaining ham radio stations. You get to talk to the people living in the remotest part of the globe and know the things happening in those parts.
The ham radio is a way of collecting the latest and live information. With a flick of tuning dials, you may be talking to a radio operator on a ship searching for tunas in the Pacific ocean, and the next moment you may start a conversation with the radio operator of the boat crossing the English channel.
Listening to a person who is in action, even if it's fishing, can be interesting. Go on surfing the ether in search of people who may interest your group.
There is fun in each and every activity, though whether you are satisfied or not while doing it or at the end of it depends on your involvement in it. A much-hated and time-consuming task of cleaning your room can also be fun if you really set your mind on doing it properly.
