Is there a way to transfer and use CD ROM disks accompanying ARRL Handbook and other texts to an IPAD?? A mobile version would be useful for study/reference, as opposed to a laptop. just received my ARRL Handbook w/CD ROM disk and would like to take it on my IPAD for an upcoming month long trip for study.

Any PDF reader app on iTunes should do the job, not only Acrobat. However, your problem may be how to transfer a CDROM to the iPad. For this, you will probably need to use a PC (or even better, a Macintosh) that can mount the disk and share it over the network. You may need to consult an iPad / iOS expert about the details of the transfer of the PDF files - using WiFi most likely. Alternatively, there might be an option to mount a USB-interfaced CDROM drive directly on the iPad. Again, you may need an iPad expert to help. (Not me, sorry!)

Do you have a computer that can run old DOS software and Basic code like an old Win 98 computer or a new computer with DOSBox? That edition did not come with a CD or DVD--the software was provided as a download from our old web site.
