Most of us use radio waves every single day - and most of us have very little idea of how they work. In a reader-friendly style requiring no technical or mathematical background, this concise and clearly-written book explains the basics of radio signaling. You'll learn how energy carries information, messages are imprinted on energy, signals move across space, signals are detected and amplified, and electrons, watts, amps, volts, and other "mysterious beasties" work. If you're curious about the phenomena that make modern communications work ... if you want a fascinating, across-the-board tour of the entire field of radio communications, including career possibilities ... or if you want to buttress a radio license application, you've found the right book.
Jim Sinclair is a shortwave radio expert and a former broadcast operator with A.P.O./Telecom Australia, where he has installed, operated, and tested thousands of receivers and other pieces of radio and communications equipment.
