Companion Resource Book  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Good Companion book for beginning licensed Amateur Radio operators. Companion Book to Orr and ARRL Books. Does need editing and revising. Many illustrations need updating and the sentence structure and wording throughout needs an editor. Overdue for an revised and edited 3rd Edition.

Great Book for New Amateurs  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
This handbook by Bob Heil is a great book. It covers a lot if not all of the basics
for a beginning amateur radio operator. But, the seasoned amateur will also find
some things of interest and may get a few new ideas. The coverage of basic
construction techniques, homebrew ideas, and trouble shooting are excellent.
Also, all of Bob's comments and information on antennas should not be
overlooked. The beginning amateur will get the "basics" from reading this book
and will not be overwhelmed by a format similar to the ARRL Handbook.
