The whole article actually does talk about "ham radios".

Hi Bob,

The professional side of me says "congrats!".

The privacy advocate in me feels millions of voices crying out and then
suddenly silenced. This won't just be used to track foreign bad actors,
even the website says so. Just another mechanism for vacuuming up what
little private existence we still cling to.

Finally, the amateur side of me says "what does this have to do with
amateur radio in space"?
