EXPERIMENTAL METHODS IN RF DESIGN
EMRFD explores wide dynamic range, low distortion radio equipment,
the use of direct conversion and phasing methods as a serious communications
architecture, and a hands-on embracing of digital signal processing.
The amateur bands up to 2 meters are considered, and are illustrated
with CW and SSB gear. The book uses some mathematics where appropriate.
It is, however, kept at a basic level.
This work is successor to the widely popular Solid-State Design
for the Radio Amateur, published in 1977. CD-ROM included with design
software, listings for DSP firmware, and supplementary articles.
