The Fascinating World of Radio Communications.
Green, Wayne, Ed.
Intended mainly for the amateur radio operator, or "ham," this book outlines some of the pleasures to be had in amateur radio, including DXing (calling distant stations) and helping in emergencies. The steps in starting out on this hobby, including getting Citizens' Band (CB) gear, a CB license, and a receiver and antenna, are described. Also included are a few brief chapters on experimenters who made radio possible, including Volta, Galvani, and a predecessor of Marconi named Dr. Mahlon Loomi. Experiments of theirs which can be duplicated are described. There are also brief, elementary explanations of electrostatics and magnetism. (JK)
