Radios To Go!
Getting the Most From Your Hanheld Transceiver

By Steve Ford WB8IMY.
Modern technology has allowed manufacturers to pack a wealth of features into handheld transceivers. With so many features, however, it isnít always easy to get the full benefit from your investment. Even the user manuals donít tell the whole story. Your radio may have ďhiddenĒ capabilities that arenít 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? Itís true, but you wonít see this discussion in your average user manual. If you own a handheld transceiver, or if youíre trying to decide which transceiver to buy, Radios to Go! is the essential guide. Click here to view back cover
