Ham Radio Projects at W3YY

|Is ham radio just about operating? No! One of the great things about ham radio is the number of different skills that one can develop and exercise while constructing, maintaining, and operating an amateur radio station. The typical ham will be well-versed in electronics, radio propagation, antenna theory, construction techniques, computers, and much more. The list below shows some of the projects at my station in which you might be interested. Click on each item to see a complete description of the project and associated pictures.|
