Readers will also find chapters on Transmitters and Transceivers both HF and VHF, alongside chapters covering EMC, Basic components, Data modes, and even the use of computers in the shack including basic programming of Arduino and Pinguino prototyping platforms. Morse Code is covered, explaining the type of learning methods, decoders, and which type of Morse key you should choose. There is much, much more besides and far more than can be detailed here.
