It's pretty difficult to write a "Newbie's manual and not include a lot of great information for those of us who have been around a while. This manual is no exception. If you think you know it all, check this one out and you'll find stuff you either didn't know or forgot.

If you are new to amateur radio and you can only buy one "how-to" book this is the one to buy. The links in the Kindle edition are very helpful. I have no engineering background so I need a simple straightforward explanation of this very technical field. K5DZE has a real gift for writing in a clear, practical way that should appeal to anyone who is starting out in amateur radio. Reading this book is like having an elmer (mentor) alongside of you when taking those first steps in purchasing and setting up a station. That process alone can be very costly if one doesn't know the options. Bob Patterson guides the novice through several complex decisions about rigs, antennas, power supplies and station accessories without imposing his preferences on the reader. An excellent book by an excellent veteran in the field. W3GLQ.

It is okay, but not exactly what I was expecting. My hope was for something that could provide an idea of the items needed for a very basic ARS/C. But it didn't list the equipment or a layout plan from what I saw.
I didn't read the whole book due to this fact.

I liked all the advice given some of the tips helped also. I knew more than I thought this book helped me polish what I knew. Yeah. My brain does work. I have already have my shack almost done. Waiting on some coax for my radio to hook to my antenna. Good read. I will read more of Bob Patterson books.

If you are brand new to amateur radio it would be helpful, you might learn about some new websites. It is basic because everyone's setup is going to be different, but it does tell you somethings to look for in radios and why, and about antennas and space requirements.

I recommend this to any new ham. A pleasant tone and lots of helpful information. Bob is showing how Elmers can help bring up new Hams.
