A thin cup of tea at that price  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I forgot to write in the first review that I made that the first chapter in the book which runs 30 pages is almost identical word by word to the chapter “HF Digital Communications” in the 10th edition of the ARRL operating manual.
This is no coincidence since both are done by the same author.
So I you have that book also you only get 95 pages of new material.

Not worth the money  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I paid £35 for this book from amazon.co.uk vat and postage included.
At that price it’s a thin cup of tea.
What’s in it is excellent, but its way too short (125 pages) for the price on has to pay.

Excellent Book for Beginner  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
This book is an excellent book for the beginner in Digital HF operation. It can also be good reading for even the amateur who needs some review of the operations or want to learn a new mode.
On the air experience has shown that many new operators to the digital modes, could learn from reading this book. The instructions and figures are excellent. Can be easier to learn from and use than some of the internet presnetations.
