Best-selling author and active amateur radio operator Don Keith, N4KC, shows those interested in joining the "tribe" of Amateur Radio enthusiasts as well as newcomers to the hobby and old hands, too, just how magical and exciting it can be. Ham radio is bigger and more vibrant than ever, and has experienced tremendous growth with the advent of digital communications, software-defined and computer controlled radios, space technology and more.
Those who think the Internet, smart phones, and social media sites have made the hobby obsolete are sorely mistaken. Like the booming Maker Faire and "hacker" movements, this hobby offers the opportunity to explore as deeply as and in any direction desired. Similarly, hams are able to combine radio with many other activities like RVing, model building, astronomy, hiking, sailing, weather spotting, and more. Keith's book, written in an entertaining and easy-to-understand style, gives myriad practical, real-world examples.
