Facts on Ham Radio

[html] Thought people might be interested in reading some of these facts on Ham Radio.  I've added it to the links as well so it can be found after this news item is archived.  Its kind of an Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) which I think would be a good addition to this site for new hams to find out more about what amateur radio is all about.
