Ham radio operators are using digital radio applications for fun, technical achievement, and public service. And it’s no wonder. Getting started often requires little more than a VHF radio and a computer.

Without complicated “owners manual” jargon—ARRL’s VHF Digital Handbook presents the material through a unique how-to approach and friendly, conversational style.


Packet Radio Fundamentals: All the basics including TNCs, operating commands, and networks (such as DX Packetcluster).
APRS – The Automatic Position Reporting System: Track moving objects on maps (other stations, public service vehicles, marathon runners, etc.). Connect your own GPS receiver and transmit your location even as you’re moving!
D-STAR: Enjoy high-speed digital voice and data on the growing network of D-STAR repeaters.
High Speed Multimedia: Discover how you can set up your own wireless Amateur Radio data network by modifying over-the-counter gear such as routers and access points. It’s ham WiFi consumers can only dream about!
Digital Meteor Scatter and Moonbounce: Explore weak signal operating using the software masterpiece WSJT by Joe Taylor, K1JT.
Technical Descriptions: In-depth information about AX.25, D-STAR and APCO-25 protocols.
Plus, digital applications in public service and emergency communications: Packet radio, APRS, Winlink 2000 and more!
