If you are looking for coax, antenna wire, connectors, rotor cable, insulators, rope or the tools to make antennas Davis RF Company is a place I like to use.

This is a good website to find all sorts, configuration and strengths of magnets for all kinds of projects. (I made a inexpensive stir-plate to propagate larger volumes of yeast to pitch into batches of homemade beer using Neodymium magnets glued to an old computer fan.)

Another great YouTube show! Ham Nation
This episode speaks about hooking up and audio mixer to your transmitter with Bob Heil and Gordon West, et al. Every show is packed full of information about many different facets of the hobby. Watch them all! (Segment begins at 41:45 in the video…)
Hosts: Bob Heil (K9EID), Gordon West (WB6NOA), George Thomas (W5JDX), and Leo Laporte (W6TWT)
I have built four different radios from Ramsey and they are fun to build, easy to layout, and you learn a lot of radio design. Built the 40 Meter QRP Receiver and Transmitter, the Aircraft Receiver, Infrared Transmitter and Receiver kits. A great way to pass a rainy day! (Click link below to go to their website…)
This is another fine explanation of PKS31 operations. It is a Power Point presentation by John MacFarlane VE7AXU / VA7PX from 2008… but it still gives you some sound knowledge! (Click link below to begin…)
BPSK31.COM does a great job of explaining how to get on the air with PSK31 technology. (Click link below for another excellent resource.)
Running PSK31 on Field Day in 2014 was a BLAST! We soon learned that a set a easy to use macros sped up our contacts in the contest. The link below is an excellent resource to consider.
Another SUPERB W2AEW video! I love PSK31 and this is a GREAT video explaining how to have a clean and crisp signal showing up in everyone’s waterfall.
W2AEW does a FANTASTIC job of explaining all sorts of nifty concepts in Ham Radio. I follow his videos on YouTube and spend many evenings learning from this fine gent! I also have some of his books as reference material.
I am gonna HAVE a scope some day!
Need to figure out what cables to use or what the pinout configuration should be? This is a nice resource for just that!
Welcome to the Hardware Book. Internet’s largest free collection of connector pinouts and cable descriptions. (Click the following link…) http://www.hardwarebook.info/
My daughter made a crystal radio set over 15 years ago for a school Science Fair. It worked great! But she took 2nd Place (to a freakin’ terrarium) because the (freakin’) science TEACHER indicated to me that “the sound wasn’t very loud”… C’est la vie! (I should have tried to drive my 1 KW linear amplifier with it!)
Try one of these great XTAL SET SOCIETY kits… http://www.midnightscience.com/
This is the 12-Channel audio mixer I picked up at the 2014 Dayton Hamvention Flea Market for $50… and I love it!
Hendrick QRP Kits… It’s always good to have a mental health break from time to time! Grab a soldering iron and make some smoke!

I have made several of these kits over the years. Also, they are fun science projects for kids. If you like to tinker in the ham shack when the weather prevents outdoor activity, try one of these projects!
This video will help explain how to create and audio mix with a mixing board.
