Ham Radios

In Fallout 3, what's the point of the ham radios?

They are everywhere but do they have any real purpose?

The ham radios in Fallout 3 are part of the Cold War theme as seen in many post-apocalyptic themed books, movies, TV shows, and nuclear survival guides. The ham radio is shown or thought of as the final and most reliable communications link between between human beings isolated in their shelters and communities after an atomic conflagration. Each of those ham radios represents hope, showing that 200 years before the events in Fallout 3 desperate people clung to those radios, sent out signals, sat by them listening, waiting for rescue, clinging to the last remnants of civilization, and next to the ones deep underground, the ones you hear the signals for when you turn the power on to their radio towers, are the rotted bones of those people, long dead, their futile efforts to survive pointless, no better off than the bones of suicide victims you discover elsewhere, and not so different from our often desperate and futile struggles or those of your character in the game.

TIL the "ham" in ham radio was originally an insult by professional radio operators against their amateur counterparts and isn't any kind of acronym. It's the same joke as a calling someone a "ham" actor or a "ham" comedian.
