Everything for the Active Ham Radio Operator
Talking to friends. Serving your community. Chasing DX. Adding a new band. Trying a new mode. Working a contest. Taking your radio on the road or out in the field. These are just a few of the exciting and fun on-air operating activities to try once you have earned your license and mastered the basics.
For decades, The ARRL Operating Manual for Radio Amateurs has been recognized as a comprehensive guide to Amateur Radio operating — things you can do on the air with your gear. In some cases, you may need to pick up new software or another radio, antenna, or accessory, but in many cases you already have the tools you need to get started. Featuring new material on FT8 and other WSJT-X digital modes, this 12th edition has been revised and updated by experienced hams who are active on the air. They are happy to share what they have learned so that you can get involved and on the air too.
