Getting the Most from your Handheld Transceiver

Modern technology has allowed manufacturers to pack a wealth of features into handheld transceivers. With so many features, however, it isn’t always easy to get the full benefit from your investment. Even the user manuals don’t tell the whole story. Your radio may have “hidden” capabilities that aren’t described in the manual at all. For example, did you know that a dual-band 2-meter/70 cm handheld transceiver can be used to communicate through Amateur Radio satellites? It’s true, but you usually won’t see this discussion in your average user manual.

If you own a handheld transceiver, or if you’re trying to decide which transceiver to buy, Radios to Go! is the essential guide. Helpful topics include:

  • Why Are They Called HTs? (And Which One Should I Buy?)
  • The Care and Feeding of Batteries
  • Memories
  • Scanning
  • Alphabet Soup: CTCSS, DTMF and DCS
  • IRLP and EchoLink
  • Antennas
  • Microphones and Headsets
  • Software Management
  • Expanding Your Horizons: APRS and Satellites
