1400 terms…1600 definitions…hundreds of web links so you can learn more! This is the most comprehensive Ham Radio glossary ever compiled. Any pursuit that mankind might adopt quickly develops its own language, its proprietary jargon, its own semi-secret dialect fully understood only by its most avid and serious practitioners. The hobby of Amateur Radio, now entering its second century–and as vibrant and exciting as ever–is a good example. But now, for the first time, a complete and easy-to-use dictionary is available, ready for quick reference. This book, compiled by best-selling author, award-winning broadcaster, and active Ham enthusiast Don Keith N4KC, is intended for use by newcomers or those just getting interested in Ham Radio. But it is also a valuable resource for old-timers, too. New words pop up all the time whether it is on the air, in periodicals, or in Ham Radio groups. Technology and on-air operating events continually introduce new words into the lexicon. Hams have such a wide variety of options they may pursue that even the most active operators often need to quickly look up a term. The maker movement and maker faire popularity are also attracting many newcomers to the hobby and this glossary is an invaluable asset to those do-it-yourself advocates as well. So here it is, THE Amateur Radio Dictionary, the most comprehensive glossary of Ham Radio terms ever compiled. Keep it near your operating position, use it when you encounter a term that is new to you, or use it as you study for your FCC amateur radio license exam and prepare to make your first contact. And then you will be able to get the most from this fascinating hobby!
