Despite its old-school reputation, amateur radio is on the rise, and the airwaves are busier than ever. That's no surprise: Being a ham is a lot of fun, providing an independent way to keep in touch with friends, family, and new acquaintances around the world. Hams are also good in a crisis, keeping communications alive and crackling during extreme weather events and loss of communications.

If one or more of these benefits is of interest to you, then good news: the new edition of Ham Radio for Dummies covers them all! In his signature friendly style, longtime ham Ward Silver (call sign NØAX) - contributing editor with the American Radio Relay League - patches you in on everything from getting the right equipment and building your station to the intricacies of Morse code and Ohm's law. In addition, he coaches you on how to prepare for the FCC-mandated licensing exam and tunes you up for ultimate glory in the ham radio hall of fame as a Radiosport competitor! With this book, you'll learn to:

  • Set up and organize your station
  • Communicate with people around the world
  • Prep for and pass the FCC exam
  • Tune into the latest tech, such as digital mode operating
