Format: Hardcover
Radio engineering, by Frederick E. Terman, is one of the seminal works of radio electronics engineering and technology. For anyone interested in vacuum tube circuitry and its design, this volume is highly reccommended. The information is arranged in an orderly, easily read manner, and the mathematcal foundations of many of the concepts we take for granted are laid out in simple terms, so that understanding is forthcoming. This 2" thick, heavy book (unless you get a copy printed during WWII when paper was made of thinner stock) takes the reader from the foundations of the art, quickly into a place where the highest knowledge of those days are explored. A "must-have" reference for any serious student of the art of vacuum tube technology. If you are going to build a tube-type power supply, audio or RF amplifier, oscillator, or an entire radio communications system, this book is for you.

This is it ! This is THE Electronics and Radio Book explaining
the concepts ranging from Network theory to Electronics to
Communication theory to Communication Systems.But here is the
difference it has ORIGINALITY.First of its kind and it is
the only book stressing on Wave theory and QED complex amplitude
stuff.
MOST IMPORTANT ASPECTS
1.This book coverage on Transmission lines theory is unparallel
and uses none other than Quantum Electrodynamic Models(QED)
for explaining the Transmitted,Reflected,transmission waves.
No other book even Krauss book does this.
2.This book is having a beautiful treatment on Waveguides
and cavity resonators.
3.The use of Phasors to illustrate the time developments
of AM and FM waves.
Here is the list of chapters if you are curious
1. The Elements of a system of Radio Communication
2. Circuit Elements
3. Properties of Circuits and Lumped Constants
4. Transmission Theory
5. Waveguides and Cavity Resonators.
6. Fundamental Properties of Electron Tubes.
7. Electron Optics and Cathode-ray tubes.
8. Voltage Amplifiers for Audio Frequencies.
9. Voltage Amplifiers for Video Frequencies.
10.Power Amplifiers.
11.Negative Feedback.
12.Tuned Voltage Amplifiers.
13.Vacuum tube Oscillators.
14.Amplitude Modulation.
15.Detectors and Mixers.
16.Frequency Modulation.
17.Wave Shaping and Pulse techniques.
18.Microwave tubes.
19.Power for operating Vacuum tubes.
20.Transistors and related Semiconductor devices.
21.Propagation of Radio Waves.
22.Antennas
23.Radio transmitters,Receivers and Communication Systems.

For those reading this review. Be sure to get Terman's other classic: "Radio Engineers Handbook". In contrast, "Electronic and Radio Engineering" is a textbook. The two books work well with each other. The other reviews are very accurate.

I grew up when semiconductors were in their infancy and most radios were vacuum types. Unfortunately, over the years I have lost all my old references that cover them. I own two fairly modern amps that use power triodes and needed some help with impedances - Prof. Terman and "Electronic and Radio Engineering " to the rescue. This book was top of its class back in 1955 when it was published, and has over 1000 pages of theory and analysis that cover just about every aspect of vacuum tube physics and engineering. I recommend it highly , but caution that it was targeted at the electrical engineering types and is probably not very useful to the casual hobbiest.
