About The WIA Online Bookshop
Introducing The WIA Online Bookshop
The WIA online bookshop is a member service provided by the Wireless Institute of Australia for all Australian Amateurs.
In April 2019 the bookshop made a radical change to its business model. The bookshop will still stock and sell WIA publications and merchandise. These are available at member and non-member prices.
The bookshop, however, will have no physical stock of books. It will provide links to large online bookstores. These offer the amateur the best possible pricing, and also usually offer a choice of new, hard-cover, paper-back, second-hand and eBook options.
It will be necessary for you to create an account at the book vendor if you wish to purchase a book.
Our Range Of Books
The online bookshop is now a "curated list" of recommended books. We will not be building a list of all AR books possible, but a list of those that are popular and good value for money.
The links to bookshops are affiliate links, which means that if you purchase books by following our links, the WIA will receive a small commission. Using these links means you can help the WIA earn a small income stream, at no cost to you.
If you believe a particular book should be on the list, but is not, we'd love to hear from you. Please send an email with the details of the book to addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org
