Handbook of Technical Instruction for Wireless Telegraphists

Nature volume 150, page 40 (11 July 1942) | Download Citation



IN such a rapidly growing subject as radio communication, a technical book which has survived to a seventh edition must first have possessed a very sound basis in its original form, and secondly it must have been very wisely kept abreast of the subject by its authors. All wireless operators of the pre-1914 vintage will remember the first edition by J. C. Hawkhead ; this book was a standard work of its time for all would-be operators studying to qualify for the Postmaster-General's certificate. The latest edition maintains the traditions of its forerunners in providing for operators and engineers a complete course of instruction in the general principles and practice of marine wireless communication.
