Hams have always been tinkerers and do-it-your-selfers. Finding a comprehensive source for radio kits, and kit building information can be a bit frustrating. Neil Goldstein, W2NDG, maintains a list of Ham Radio kit resources at radiokitguide.com, and for our March general meeting will give an overview of this list. What's out there? What's recommended? What do you need to get started? Getting into kit building is easy, fun, and not as difficult as you may think. Come to March's meeting and learn how to build your own gear, and learn how many kits are out there. Probably more than you think.
