“Getting Started” Packages Make the Perfect Holiday Gift for New Hams

For many Hams, the first question asked after receiving official notification of their call sign is, “Now what?” The good news is that Ham Radio offers many opportunities for easy entry into the hobby. The bad news is that with so many options, it’s sometimes hard for fledgling operators to know where to begin.

The Elmers at DX Engineering are here to help—and you can be an Elmer, too. If you know a recently licensed Ham who has yet to get on the air or a young person eager to get cracking, HT and mobile transceiver “Getting Started” Packages from DX Engineering make a great gift for the holidays.
