Amateur radio’s pioneer organization was the American Radio Relay League, founded in 1914 by Hiram Percy Maxim. Its journal, QST, begun in December 1915, was the first and remains the foremost publication in the field. Since its inception, radio amateurs or “hams” have played an immense role in the advancement of American radio and television communications.
