The 2020 ARRL Handbook

The ARRL Handbook for Radio Communications limited-edition six-volume set is workbench friendly. Grab the volume you need without having to retrieve the entire Handbook. Volumes are divided by major topic areas.

ARRL introduced the first edition of The Radio Amateur’s Handbook, written by F. E. Handy, W1BDI, in 1926. Ever since, the Handbook has been recognized as a benchmark for radio communications learning and applied knowledge. This 97th edition is your complete guide to radio experimentation, discovery, and innovation. It is the Handbook — written by radio amateurs for everyone with a desire to advance the pursuit of wireless technology.

New Handbook projects and content include an analysis of Solar Cycle 24, and discussion of what we can expect from Cycle 25; an easy-to-build RF choke that can squelch the line noise from your ac generator; a guide to compare rotator ratings and how to choose, install, and maintain rotators; an annual transceiver survey (don’t buy your next radio before reading it), and supplemental content, such as a high-voltage switching power supply, a tunable RF preamplifier, a 10 W audio amplifier and more, available for download.

Both Handbook formats include a unique code, so you can download and install a fully searchable digital edition of the printed book, as well as expanded supplemental content, software, PC board templates, and other support files.
