Welcome to VolunteerHam. VolunteerHam was built to give you, the volunteer, the ability to track the hours and miles you travel when you volunteer. Besides your time donated as a volunteer is priceless why not keep track of it.

Why VolunteerHam

Since 2021 VoluntteerHam is open and avaiable for all Amateur Radio Operators in Ohio to use for free.
