While ham radio is mostly used for voice and morse code, standard e-mail can be sent through AirMail, a free service that operates over the airwaves and is used by campers and yachters. A modem is required, but don't expect blazing speeds as most are around 300 to 9600 baud. Not great for sending 2MB images, but perfect for messaging "I am alive" in an emergency.
