(This is the first of a series of technical articles for newcomers to ham radio. Future posts will can be found here and all will be archived under the category “technical”.)
One of the first things a new ham will want to know is how to solder. If you erect an antenna, you’ll want to know how to solder connectors and wires. If you enjoy building kits, then soldering is an art you will want to learn.
Locally, you can buy a soldering iron or a gun at Sayal Electronics in Burlington or at one of the parts stores located in Mississauga on Matheson Blvd. west of Dixie Road.
