Make: Radio (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


This book introduces the reader to amateur radio and prepares them for the FCC Technician license exam. It focuses on electronics and wireless technologies through projects that provide some hands-on hardware construction and operation. The reader can look upon this book as a short course in electronic and radio fundamentals that appear as questions in the FCC exam

The book also summarizes the many potential activities and sub-interests possible in this hobby such as satellites, QRP (low power operation) and the new digital modes. Finally the book presents a more realistic approach to studying to pass the Technician exam.
