Radio Hardware Theory
The essence of this book is about learning the concepts of radio design, not just copying a recipe for success. This chapter is all theory about how radios work. Once you have an understanding of the principles, you should be able to begin experiments of your own, not necessarily copying a design but modifying a design to work with different components, or to work on a different frequency, for example. Building a known design to start with and getting it working gives you a boost in confidence to carry on and go further. Modifying a design or designing your own gives you a real sense of achievement.
