To anyone desiring instruction in the principles underlying the working of modern radio apparatus this work can be recommended. It is necessary to have a working knowledge of electricity and magnetism and the principles of wave motion. This is given first, and then we have chapters on aerials, receivers, masts, thermionic valves, and triodes — their use as amplifiers being explained. There is a good chapter on the frequency stabilisation of transmitters, descriptions being given both of control by tuning-forks and by quartz oscillators. The design of a modern broadcast radio receiver is fairly fully described, and also the use of a.c. and d.c. eliminators.
