One of my new friends at the Straight Key Century Club, N8NOE, sent me a link to this resource: All About Circuits. The resource provides a series of online textbooks covering electricity and electronics. Good stuff!

Recommended Reading

Wayne KW5M did an excellent presentation last night. I think everyone who attended came away with something new. I will try to post his presentation, if available, on this website later this week. Thanks Wayne for all your hard work!

During the program, he recommended two books that are MUST reading for every ham operator:

ARRL Handbookon ARRL Website for $49.95. He mentioned that you can also buy it used on the Internet or at ham conventions as it does not go out of date that much.

ARRL Operator’s Manual. This one is $29.95. Buy it new at ARRL website, used on Internet, or buy at ham conventions.

Fun Online Simulation

In the process of preparing lessons for an elementary class in electronics, I came across this fun website called Circuit Lab. I thought I would share it with the BAARC Club in case you have not seen it.
