A moment of serendipity.
Let’s face it, the internet can be a sewer. Yes, there’s quite a bit of useful information out there, but sometimes trying to find it is like sticking your hand in a toilet full of crap to fish out a hundred dollar bill. DATABASE
Well, in my travels about the interwebs today I found a hundred dollar bill, and I didn’t even have to humiliate myself or muck up my hand to do it.
Some ambitious person created a database of user manuals, service manuals, and schematics for hundreds of amateur radios. What the website lacks in flash and visual appeal is more than made up with solid, practical information. DATABASE
The database does not include every radio ever made, and does not include any radios made after 2012. Still, it’s worth your while to bookmark the site, or download it to local storage, because you never know….
If you run older equipment, this website may be exactly what you need to stay on the air.
We’ll see you later this month for our regular must-read article. Until then, do yourself a favor and add this radio manual database to your resources.
A link to the database has also been added to the Off Grid Ham Links and Resources page.
