Chpt 2 - Radio & Signal Fundamentals

Chpt 2 - Radio & Signal Fundamentals

This is the real beginning of your Amateur Radio Adventure!  In this chapter, we dive into what makes a radio work - the signals and some basics of radio equipment basics.  The material in this chapter is presented in a "here's what you need to know" style.  References will be provided so that you can learn more about topics that interest you. 

Covering these topics first makes it easier for you to understand the material later on.  You'll also be a better and safer operator.


This page is organized to support the Fourth Edition of the Ham Radio License Manual.
