Vintage books, Manuals, and other publications For Sale:


Reference Data for Radio Engineers:

This book published by Sams / ITT is somewhat similar
to an ARRL Handbook, but in much more depth and detail,
since it is designed for engineers.

This book covers the fields of research, development,
production, operation and education for radio engineers.
It is loaded with tables and charts necessary in
communications. Excellent resource book when looking for
data,from the acoustic spectrum to radio wave propagation.

This one is the Sixth Edition printed in 1978, but the
basic information has not changed much.

This one is hardback, and it is in excellent condition,
close to new. The cover does not even appear to be worn.
This exact book in this condition is selling on Amazon
