    An Excelent Book for ANY Amateur

    I got this book shortly after I got my Technician Class license and I find it facinating! There is an almost unending amount of information offered! A must have for anyone that has an Amateur License or is interested in getting one!

    Ham Radio for Dummies not just for beginners!

    Ward Silver N0AX has done a superb job of distilling the essense of amateur (ham) radio to a manageable volume that is a valuable resource for both the beginner and expert alike. After 35 years as a ham I still managed to find several interesting topics and tid-bits even after only my first cursory review. A great read but more importantly a good introduction for folks who either have never heard of the ham radio hobby before or whose perception kept them from pursuing the hobby further. 73 - Dino KL0S

    Finish those lyrics!

    Alright. Welcome to FTL! Here, we give out a random phone call quiz to our listeners. Here is today's unfinished lyric set: <br>
    It's deep underground. Past the bedrock, so don't dig straight down. You'll ______ ____. <br>
    So, what are the finishing lyrics for this part? Each underscore ( _ ) represents one letter. The first word is 6 letters, the second word is four letters. If you've heard the Minecraft song "Screw the Nether", you should know the words that fill in the blanks.

    An Excellent Overview, However, NOT A Study Guide!

    This book is an excellent overview of Amateur radio. Every technology I am aware of at prescient time is covered in reasonable depth. Anyone who is curious about HAM radio will do well to read this book.

    What this book is not is it is not a study guide to help pass the Amateur license exam. Although there are many questions on that exam that may be answered within this book do not attempt to take the test unless you have used a study guide!

    I read the Nook version which shows a newer copy write than the paper version. I do not have a hard copy to compare with but it appears the Nook version does not have new material. Furthermore, many of the URL's hyperlink'd in the text are now dead.

    If the URL's were good I'd have given up five stars...

    Sensory Overload

    I know almost nothing about Ham Radio. This book kept introducing new concepts at such a pace I could barely keep up and it seemed to be in kind of random order. Maybe if I read it again it would go more easily. I WAS surprised how much I remembered once I started studying for my Technician license, so some of it did sink in.
