While the "amateur" means "for love", many amateur radio operators approach the past time and contributions of amateur radio with as much zeal and passion as their professional interests. It is more than a hobby. It's a world of continual discovery, knowledge, and friendships beyond compare. Lifetime friendships and knowledge that enhance careers, families, your community.
These study guides will help you learn about the various aspects that make up amateur radio.
Enjoy, and feel free to drop me an e-mail if you have any questions.

I recommend that every amateur radio operator get a copy of "The Amateur Radio Handbook" published by the ARRL. It is loaded full of information.
I also recommend that serious amateur radio operators get a copy of "The Antenna Handbook" published by the ARRL. It is very comprehensive, covering many topics on antenna and transmission lines. It will greatly help you make the most of your antenna situation.
