Radar for Technicians based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
I purchased this book after passing my test for a General Radio Telephone operators license with radar endorsement. I always knew that just because you pass a test does not mean you completely know the subject. So I used this book to reinforce, and further my knowledge of the subject of Radar to be better prepared to work on these systems. This is a great book with the technician in mind. I have spent a fortune on books like this only to find myself blacklisted, and segregated from earning a descent living in electronic, yet I still like to refer to this book if I should need it.
