In New Zealand hams are licensed by the Ministry of Economic Development (MED), Radio Spectrum Management (RSM). Once licensed, an amateur can operate two-way radio equipment from home, from vehicles and from anywhere in New Zealand - and in many cases when overseas too! Bands of radio frequencies in the radio frequency spectrum have been set aside for amateur radio use. An amateur can talk across town or around the world. The scope and possibilities are endless from sending TV pictures and operating through amateur radio satellites to just having a quiet chat with friends at a distance.
