Thanks to the recording skills of Ian DJ0HF we have recently added MP3 manuals for both the original and SDA 100 SteppIR antenna controllers.

Tim GI4OPH sent us the RNIB cassettes for the TR-751 and TR851 Manual, and Chris M5AGG converted these to MP3.

The above MP3 audio can be found on the Manuals page, accessed from Recordings.

Rob K6DQ sent us the files he produced for the TM-V71A and E. He converted the complete manual into HTML format and it opens as a fully indexed web page. He also sent us an HTML table of the menu system, and a mike keyboard and front panel description. These are on the Kenwood TM-V71E page under the Related Downloads section.

RNIB Recorded Manuals

We’ve had the great news, the Royal National Institute of Blind People, the RNIB, has given permission for the Active Elements website to host their recordings of Amateur Radio manuals! 

Unfortunately, many older recordings were not transcribed from cassette when the RNIB library moved to digital output, and many recordings were made for an individual and not archived. 

Amateur radio equipment can be fully serviceable for decades, and can be heard on the air for years.  We would ask anyone with recordings of manuals, to please not assume there are copies available elsewhere, and  to please contact us.  You never know, the fact there is a manual available might just keep someone in the hobby.
