Can any direct me to a book or article that lets you calculate the voltage,resistance throughout a radio schematic.
In other words how does a radio take an electricity and turn them into radio waves.
So far all I find is block diagrams with no real explanation.
I want to understand how the radio functions on a nuts and bolts level. Why one resistor can make a significant change. Thank you
