This is a well-written book full of concise and useful info.  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
This book is very clear and immediately useful. Buck’s style is entertaining and studded with memorable anecdotal images. Realistic dialogue is included to exemplify how (and how not) to proceed while making contacts. He covers two dozen topics and nearly 40 subtopics including modes, choosing equipment, grounds, antennas, operating strategies, propagation, QSO etiquette, confirming contacts, and much more. Buck is an insightful and efficient writer. Through the economy of his language, he explains concepts quickly and directly. He avoids whimsical filler. Footnotes explain terms that are unique to amateur radio. This book continues to be a ready reference in my shack. I also bought his book on DX and his prep book for the Extra ticket. As the best mentors do, he shares his knowledge with all by way of practical examples and applicable guidance.
