    That book is really an asset and worth every single penny.

    25 US$, is it?
    I'm sure you can manage that. Especially if you buy used on eBay
    since yearly updates are usually small.

    Yes, the websites are known as libraries, and the webpages there are
    known as books. You get a membership card, and then you can download
    the books by physically taking them off the shelf, checking them out,
    and bringing them home. Chances are pretty good that a local library,
    no matter where (at least in North America), would have a copy of the
    ARRL Handbook.

    You can also buy it, from the ARRL, http://www.arrl.org or at various
    bookstores real or online.

    I've found copies, though admittedly not recent, at used book sales.

    You can also watch for an upcoming amateur radio club fleamarket,
    and likely someone will have a copy or two for sale there. Again,
    the ARRL keeps a list of such events in North America at their website.

    Here's the closet thing that's legitimate: a CD-ROM for $40. Round it
    off to the nearest $100 and it's free!

    The search string "ARRL handbook" on eBay brings up about 40 copies
    for sale, many starting at $1.50. I suppose some finish around $5.

    Thanks,

    It's gone up in price, the softcover 2004 edition is $34.95, with
    the hardcover $49.95 US. I can remember when it had a cover price
    of $6.50, that was what I paid for the first one I bought back in
    1971, but it is still a good buy if you are paying US dollars.

    The ARRL site, http://www.arrl.org is listing 2003 editions
    while "quantities last" but do not put a discount price on them.

    One can also get the Handbook on CDROM, for $39.95. Unfortunately,
    when they list compatibility, they leave out Linux.

    It just shows you how set in my ways I must be at 44. Traditionally,
    a hamfest was the place to find used copies.

    Of course, while there is little variation from year to year, there
    has been a lot of variation over the years. Someone should splurge
    on a relatively new edition if that's what they are interested in.
    If someone is looking for tube information, a recent edition would be
    of little use.

    It really is a good resource to keep handy. Just like the Win's.

    With dollar being as low as it is, it still is effectively US$ 25 :)

    That's the one thing you can almost be sure to find in a library.
    Of course, I haven't checked the one up river ( gyck, gyck :] !! )
    and if the rest of this area is indicative of the libraries...

    I bough a whole stack of '50s and '60's editions at a hamfest for $
    ..50 each a few years ago. They were under the guy's table all day, and
    no one had asked the price. When he told me $ .50 each, people started
    grabbing for them, but he told them they were all sold. He said people
    had looked at them all day, and i was the only one to ask the price, so
    i could buy any, or all of them. The replaced some that were borrowed,
    and never returned.
