Here is a short list of websites that I’ve found to be good resources for information about ham
radio. I hope you will be able to find these useful. These sites are listed in no particular order. If
you click on a link from here and find that the website is down or the information isn’t there
that you’re looking for, please contact me and let me know so I can remove the link from this
America: I’ve owned an IC-718 and currently own an IC-735
and an IC-706MKII. I am happy with all of my radios and recommend
ICOM to my fellow hams.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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).
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.
- 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!
- TW Software:
Linux-based ham radio software written by Ted Williams WA0EIR. He’s
written TWPSK, TWLOG, TwHamQTH, TWCLOCK, TWCW, and PSK31LX. I’ve
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.
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).
