NEWHAMS.INFO

There are heaps of useful links to radio theory topics and to sites dealing with general interest, ham radio suppliers, antenna information, repeaters and propagation.

Amateur Radio - Technical/Reference

DX Zone - Amateur Radio Antenna Projects

A good antenna Web Site -- ZL4AG

I personally find DX Zone hard to navigate. It often seems to turn up results with little context or ability to research the original author's references. However the site does link to an extraordinary amount of useful stuff. On this one I defer to experience. Thanks for the link Ralph. -- ZL1FAT

Fora

EEVBlog

You're probably familiar with it. The place is pretty legendary if you're interested in electronics. It's always busy, and there are a heap of helpful people hanging around. All the help and advice you could wish for, pretty much.

It's run by Dave Jones over in Sydney. He also has a popular YouTube channel. Which you've also probably seen.

YouTube

Topic: Electronics Resources - YouTube - Websites hosted on EEVBlog

A few guys have been curating a list of YouTube resources over at the EEVBlog forum. It's pretty comprehensive. It belongs on a wiki, but that falls outside the skillset of the list maintainers. It is what it is. And it is good.
