Introduction to RF Electronics
This chapter is a brief introduction to electronic components, to circuit building techniques, and to the tools you will need. The aim is to fill in a few gaps for those readers who may well be experienced amateur astronomers but to whom electronics is new. Many texts on amateur radio astronomy have assumed the reader already has skills in radio and electronics. It is not possible in such a small space to cover everything. Indeed, an entire book could be dedicated to this topic alone, so a reading list is included at the end of this book for further information.
