Handbook 100 | The 100th edition of The ARRL Handbook for Radio Communications
To commemorate this special edition, a collector’s edition of Handbook 100 is strikingly hardbound in a textured black finish with silver foil embossing. The collector’s edition includes a special insert looking back across decades of content that built The Handbook’s reputation as a “must-have” for the radio experimenter. This special section celebrates The Handbook’s evolution across decades of technological innovation and growth of ham radio. It’s a retrospective told through previous edition covers and pages.
Handbook 100 is by far the most extensively revised and expanded edition in recent years — including new and revised topics, content, and projects. It is written by radio amateurs who share their experience, learning, and discovery from across the state-of-the-art and emerging technologies. Each chapter is authored and edited by experts in the subject.
The ARRL Handbook strikes the perfect balance between comprehensive RF engineering reference and practical treatment of basic electronic fundamentals, circuit design and equipment construction, antennas, transmission lines, safe electrical, RF practices, and more.
Each chapter is filled with the most up-to-date knowledge representative of the wide and ever-expanding range of interests among radio amateurs. There are practical, hands-on projects for all skill levels — from simple accessories and small power supplies to amplifiers and high-gain antennas.
