It's happened to everyone who's been in ham radio for a while: you're at an event, class or exercise and a handheld radio's not programmed right.

Maybe you're having trouble with your HT, or more likely a new ham has come up to you and said, "I can't figure out what's wrong." This guide's plain language and clear pictures show you how to set up a radio using the radio keypad alone - without programming cables or additional software.

For over 85 radios, you'll get instructions to:

  • Set frequency
  • Set repeater offset and direction
  • Set squelch tones
  • Set power levels
  • Write to a memory
  • Select a memory
  • Lock and unlock the radio
  • Adjust volume and squelch
  • Reset the radio to defaults
  • Resolve common problems

If you deal with different kinds of handheld ham radios, you need this book!
