Handheld Radio Field Guide

Cover of the Handheld Programming Field Guide

Field programming for more than 65 radios

This guide is an indispensable quick reference for programming radios in the field. It describes, in plain language and clear pictures, how to set up a radio using the radio keypad, without cloning cables or additional software.

It includes many of the common radios you'll find in the field—and some that you may run into only once or twice.

For each radio, you'll get instructions for:

  • Setting frequency, repeater offset, direction, tones, squelch and power levels
  • Writing to a memory
  • Locking and unlocking the radio, and resetting the radio to defaults

In addition to that, you'll learn about some of the problems you'll run into with each kind of radio, and how to fix them.

If you deal with different kinds of handheld ham radios, you need this book!

Andrew Cornwall, KF7CCC, VE1CCC, is active in the emergency communications community in Arizona. He has helped manage and taken part in large scale communications exercises and public service events.has worked communications exercises and public service events. He is an ARES Emergency Coordinator, a manager of the Arizona Emergency Net—Maricopa training net, and is accredited as an ICS Incident Communication Center Manager (INCM) and Auxiliary Communications (AUXCOMM resource. He is a trainer and volunteer examiner.

At events, incidents, and classes, Andrew has run into many handheld ham radios that are tricky to program. In those situations, coordinators often don't have time to help every ham with a problem radio. Andrew wrote the Handheld Radio Field Guide so a coordinator could hand it to a ham with a problem, and say, “Figure it out, then bring the book back to me.”
