As I was going through this document from the 22nd edition CD, there are paragraph(s) missing between pages 3 & 4. Page 3 ends mid-sentence specifically referencing Figure 5, and continues on page 4 which jumps mid-sentence well into an explanation concerning figure 6.

Is there any way that I can find these missing paragraph(s) short of purchasing a 21st edition from which this document was taken?

Thank You & 73

I figured it out. The pages are out of sequence, and the columns on some pages shouldn't be side-by-side, ie, they should be paired with another column on another page such that I'm going to cut the page in half (vertically), and pair it up with the appropriate other half-page.

Which ARRL Publication gives the most thorough tutoring of how to use the Smith Chart?
I used to have an "FCC Rulebook." I find no such title listed any more. What do I need to find reference to everything legal about ham radio? i.e., the acceptable formats of Spread Spectrum, etc?

As far as the "legal" part goes, check http://www.arrl.org/federal. All of Part 97 pertains to amateur radio. Those are the formal rules. As to exactly what modulations are permitted, there are better (more tutorial) resources elsewhere, such as the ARRL Handbook and some of the more specialized ARRL publications.

We have a web page on Smith Charts.

In the 22nd ARRL Antenna Book, the Smith Chart material has been moved to the CD-rom.

http://www.arrl.org/technical-characteristics
ยง97.309(a)(4) Technical Descriptions
This is a one-stop Web site for technical characteristics called for in FCC rules ยง 97.309(a)(4), which reads:
(4) An amateur station transmitting a RTTY or data emission using a digital code specified in this paragraph may use any technique whose technical characteristics have been documented publicly, such as CLOVER, G-TOR, or PacTOR, for the purpose of facilitating communications.
Documentation should be adequate to (a) recognize the technique or protocol when observed on the air, (b) determine call signs of stations in communication and read the content of the transmissions. Click on names of the techniques already documented:
