Waves travel through Space
Expanding Universe is incomprehensibly vast and about 13.8
Billion years old. There are at least 100 Billion Stars in
our Milky Way Galaxy alone and according to current
estimates, there are at least 200 Billion Galaxies in the
observable Universe. Some estimates reach far beyond that
not to mention the Trillions of Planets, Suns, etc..

say that there are more Stars in the Universe than grains of
sand on Planet Earth. The circumference of the Earth is
about 40,000 klms. High frequency radio waves, being
electromagnetic radiations travel at the speed of light,
about 186,000 miles per second, basically being received
instantaneously around the World. Depending on the relative
position of Mars from Earth, radio waves can take up to
about 20 minutes to reach the Red Planet. The Space Craft
Voyager 1 has been traveling away from Earth for over 40
years, having been launched in 1977. It's currently in
interstellar space and over 13 Billion miles away. It's
radio signals take something like 19 hours to reach home.
Due to the time delay in Radio Communications, as we
strengthen our influence in Space, a new form of
Communication will need to be invented. If interested in a
new Communication System, click on the link 'Quantum Radio'
and go to the bottom of the page. In my opinion this will
involve mental telepathy or quantum mechanics communication.
If we can befriend ourselves and then each other here on
Planet Earth, then our destiny lies out there in Space.
Exploring and discovering. As the sailors of years gone by,
so the sailors of the sky will open our lives to new
a moment, what
this World of ours would be like without Radio
Communications. They're vital to our way of life and without
our current understanding of our place in the Universe which
is largely due to Radio Communications, we would still be
living in the 'dark ages'.
Consider how dependent Defense Forces are on Radio
Communications. Imagine also being in a small life raft,
winds howling and freezing cold in the middle of the
Atlantic Ocean with waves towering overhead. The Radio or
Beacon on board could be Your Lifesaver. Radio to the Rescue
again. Italian inventor and electrical engineer, Guglielmo
Marconi is credited with the first transatlantic telegraphic
radio communications in 1901 and now the hobby of Amateur
Radio has been around for well over 100 years. Amateur Radio
Operators have contributed to our current understandings of
Radio Communications. We stand on the shoulders of those who
have gone before us and their hard work and contributions.
It is apparent that Amateur Radio can be a gateway to the
advancement of Humanity. Looking towards the future, we need
to see over the horizon to the possibilities and the hope
which is there.

control of Amateur Radio Stations is a reality and remote
control of advanced technologies in Space also require Radio
Communications. The more aware we become of Space and what
may be out there, the less self-centred and mentally
constricted we will be. TV programs and films such as 'Star
Trek' and 'Star Wars' help in this regard.
back we can see that our Earth is just a pale blue dot in an
ocean of darkness.'
All of our entire
lives and experiences are contained in that single blue dot.
As we slowly further Our Reach into Space, Radio
Communications of one form or another will help us to
broaden our horizons and we will realize, if we survive long
enough, how insignificant we are in the grand scheme of
things. Perhaps one day with this more expansive view of our
we will be able
to see more clearly
how futile it is not
to work together and may then gradually leave conflict
behind. We are all really 'Children of the Universe' and
subject to It's Universal Laws of Life. The consequences of
our expansion into Space would mean that Radio
Communications could Save our Civilization because without
them we would feel as though we were the Centre of the
Universe, not knowing the vastness beyond and we would not
be able to leave our home, Planet Earth. Radio
Communications always have been and always will be a means
of Humanity expanding and moving forward.
