Using the HamLinks Ham Radio Toolbar

To demonstrate the HamLinks toolbar in action - assume that you are browsing the web and find a review for the Bencher BY-1 key. You want to quickly see if eHam has product reviews on the same product.

  1. Either type the product name in the search box - or simply highlight the ham radio product with your mouse
  2. Use the pull down menu to select the eHam product reviews.

Of course, you might also want to search Google (simply choose Search) or maybe the classifieds to see if someone has the BY-1 for sale. Perhaps you'd like to search for a callsign in QRZ, or DXWatch or FindU (APRS)...  Pretty cool huh?

If you're a ham who uses the web very much, I'm sure you'll have fun with this toolbar. Check it out.
