HAM RADIO RESOURCES

I'm not as much of a HAM nut as some folks, but there are some cool things out there.

Sound Radio Products
Jay at Sound Radio Products is a great guy to buy things from. Probably not any cheaper than the big mail-order places, but he's local.


EchoLink
Oh is THIS cool or what? Download the software, register with your callsign, then you're ready to be out on the air via the Internet. A great demo of voice-over-IP, too, since the audio works great even at 28.8! There are many HAMs, though, that argue this isn't true ham radio, and I can see their point...
 
CallSign Server
The folks at someplace have a great database from the FCC.
 
Repeater Database
If you're looking for a repeater, the ArtSci database is a good place to start.
 
findu.com
I haven't played much with amateur packet (APRS), but with findu.com you can see where any APRS-enabled HAM is.
 
WA License Plates
Vehicle license plates with your callsign are available from the Department of Licensing via the Specialized License Plate Application
