Ring in the new year with new publications from the ARRL! Radios to Go! Getting the Most from Your Handheld Transceiver by QST Editor Steve Ford, WB8IMY, and the 2012 Periodicals DVD are now available and ready for shipping.

Radios to Go! Getting the Most from Your Handheld Transceiver

If you recently received a handheld transceiver -- or are contemplating purchasing one -- Radios to Go! Getting the Most from Your Handheld Transceiver is a must-have book for your Amateur Radio library. A handheld transceiver, or “HT,” is often the first radio that a new ham purchases, paving the way to a lifetime of radio enjoyment. While it won’t replace the radio’s user’s manual, Radios to Go! will open your eyes to many of the “hidden” features that can be found in a handheld transceiver. Veteran amateurs will also find a great deal of new knowledge, including how to communicate via EchoLink or IRLP, or how to use these radios as packet radio data transceivers.

The 2012 ARRL Periodicals DVD is now available and includes the complete, fully searchable collection of three ARRL journals -- QST, QEX, and the National Contest Journal (NCJ).
