Electronic Builder’s Toolkit by Russ AD0QH


Kit building has become very popular among local hams. Our club President, Russ, has provided us with a follow-up shopping list of supplies the kit builder will surely need as illustrated during his presentation at the January club meeting. Whether you made the meeting or not, you will undoubtedly find his Amazon shopping list useful.
