Here is a short list of websites that I’ve found to be good resources for information about amateur radio. I hope you will be able to find these useful. If you click on a link and it's not working, please contact me and let me know so I can remove the link from this page. Thanks!
- American Radio Relay League
(ARRL): The largest amateur radio club and lobbying force in the US
for amateur radio. I’m a member.
- Cheap QSLs:
I've bought a lot of QSL cards through the years from here and the
cards are always top-notch. My favorite style is style #115. I
very highly recommed you get your QSL cards from here!
- DX Lab Suite:
I highly recommend this suite of freeware Windows software for the
active DXer. This has pretty much everything you’d need to
integrate your computer with your radio and your ham shack. The
author, through his mailing list, offers terrific user support!
- The DX Zone:
One of the top sites on the Web to find information about amateur
radio. There’s something for everyone on this site and it is
updated daily (the site even posts on Facebook when it updates!).
I highly recommend this site to any amateur or anyone who’s
interested in amateur radio.
- Ham Radio Outlet:
One of my favorite places to shop for amateur radio gear.
Since QRZ.com shut down free (as in not having to have an account
and logging in) access to its callsign database, a ham created
HamQTH.com to fill that void. I use this service myself when I
am logging QSOs as do several logging programs.
America: I currently own an IC-718 and an IC-706MKII. I am happy with all of my radios and recommend
ICOM to my fellow hams.
Systems: A small company that offers some of the best prices on
amateur radio parts and pieces, such as UHF connectors that are high
quality (made of brass, silver-plated for easy soldering).
- QRZ.COM: Again,
one of the top sites on the Web for amateur radio operators. Not
only does QRZ have the usual forums and “for sale”
boards, but QRZ’s callsign lookup system is used by millions
of amateur radio operators worldwide to look up one another’s
callsigns during contacts (QSOs).
- TW Software:
Linux-based ham radio software written by Ted Williams WA0EIR. He’s
written TWPSK, TWLOG, TwHamQTH, TWCLOCK, TWCW, and PSK31LX. I have
used them extensively in my own shack and they’re great no-frills
programs. Ted is quick to help you out if you need his help.
- Yaesu (Vertex
Standard): I own and have owned several radios from Yaesu
(VX-150, FT-23R) and have found that Yaesu radios have served
me well over the years and continue to do so.
