Tool lending is deeply rooted in the history of amateur radio.
In the spirit of amateur radio and paying it forward, 100 Watts and a Wire members may request our tool kit. In this case, instead of loaning tools locally, the kit will tour the country. If you need help, fill out this brief request form. When one ham is finished using the tools, they'll pay it forward to the next user. This way, no ham pays postage more than once. Postage is roughly 15 dollars.
Here's what's included:
