KNOW-HOW RESOURCES

The articles on this KNOW-HOW RESOURCES page are one of several ways our Club Members “Pay It Forward” for what they’ve learned from others in the past. 

Each article provides a brief introduction to the topic as well as some How To tips for more fully enjoying the Ham Radio hobby. 

Download the files that interest you.  Most files are PDFs.

For some readers, this How To I… information will be a refresher of lessons learned in the past.  For others, we invite you to read and learn from one of our enthusiastic Ham Radio Mentors, or as we call them, an ELMER.

Frank Mellott, KB3PQT is the founding author, as well as one of the most prolific authors, of the articles in his How Do I… series.   Other authors are beginning to leave their mark.

“We are here to help you.”
