Product description

Product Description

The Australian Ham Radio Handbook will help you become a radio amateur, set up a station and make contacts on air. Written for Australian conditions it covers practical topics that existing licence study and theory books miss. For beginning and experienced hams alike, it's an ideal read for anyone interested in taking up, continuing in or returning to amateur radio.

What's in the book? First there's a quick tour of what amateur radio can offer. That includes things you can do right now, with no special equipment or licences required. Then it describes how to get your callsign and set up a station. Equipment and antennas are covered next. You'll find information on what items are necessary and where you can get it, whether you choose to buy new, buy used or build your own. Later you'll learn about what different radio frequencies do, the diverse activities hams enjoy and winning tips that will get you contacts almost any time you turn on.

Near the end we cover things you can add to make your equipment more versatile, technical subinterests and how you can learn more. All up it's over 100 pages of solid information that deserves to be in any Australian amateur's shack.
