New Ham.



I would like to understand the technical end of radio.

For me, the license manuals don't do a very good job.

I was wondering---if following the historical technical development of radio (through the ages) might be a good way to get a deeper understanding.

Is there a book?

Is this even a rational idea to gain a deeper understanding?

Thanks to anyone who replies.

Best Wishes,

Scott McNamara

The ARRL Handbook is an excellent resource. It doesn't have to be a recent edition -- any Handbook from the past 20-30 years would do fine. Once you've gained an understanding of analog radio, a more recent Handbook will cover software defined radio.
