Von Luke am 2. Januar 2015
Format: Taschenbuch
Wirklich ein tolles Buch, um einen Überblick zu bekommen, was so alles im Amateurfunk möglich ist bzw. von Funkamateuren praktiziert wird. Dazu kommen viele Tipps und Tricks - sehr zu empfehlen für (Wieder-)einsteiger, aber sicher auch für "alte Hasen" als Inspiration und Nachschlagewerk interessant.

Das Buch könnte insgesamt etwas "flotter" geschrieben sein (mehr Humor, auch mal eine Meinung vertreten...), aber das ist sicher Geschmackssache. Für Amateurfunk-Unterhaltung vom Feinsten ist wohl eher Don Keith zuständig - sein Buch "Riding the short waves" ist extrem zu empfehlen!

Leider ist dieses Buch fast volkommen auf amerikanische Leser ausgelegt. Fuer Funkamateure die ausserhalb den Vereinigten Staaten wohnen, ist dieses Buch leider ziemlich nutzlos...

A great introduction to a fun avocation 20. Mai 2004
Von Randy Johnson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I am often asked why I am still interested in ham radio when it is so easy for people to communicate by e-mail and cellular phone. The answer, as is so forcefully brought home in this excellent book, is that ham radio is fun, challenging, rewarding, and provides opportunities for personal growth.
While the major objective of the book is to provide information to get newcomers into the hobby and to help get them productive and successful, there is something here that can be useful to even the most experienced operators. There are many ways people have found to enjoy the various technical, recreational, educational, and social aspects of ham radio. They are covered in this well-written book.
Ward is an operator of the first caliber. His advice is based upon personal experience, not based upon interpreting what some others person has told him. He is also a very funny person and he has a unique ability to find whatever humor exists in a situation. Therefore the tone of his book is light and eminently readable. More particularly, it does not suffer from the dry style that I found in similar books.
People who are interested in developing new skills, expanding their minds, and building relationships will find ham radio a great hobby. I recommend this book as a means of becoming successful quickly. Experienced hams will find hints that are more valuable than the modest cost of the book. Finally, those like me who were away from the hobby for a while will find a good summary of what they have missed while they were away.
A terrific read.

Get a good idea of what's in the forest 14. Mai 2004
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Have you ever wondered about those "amateur radio" license plates you see on cars? Do you see disproportionally large antennas on tall towers at some homes? Wouldn't it be really neat to be able to set up an antenna, radio, and antenna and communicate from literally anywhere, to just about anywhere, in any kind of weather, without having to be tethered to some electrical outlet? If you think I'm kidding about this, I'm not--people do this very thing everyday, from houses, hotels, boats, bikes, International Space Station, while hiking, running errands, or just seeing how many countries they can contact! Yes, you read right--different countries, from bicycles! Please stop me before I type another exclamation point!
Well, this is an excellent book to start with, in the familiar "for Dummies" format that flies you over the forest that is ham radio, and gives an overview of: signal formats, operating tips and advice, public and emergency service, radio contesting, station setup, and a number of other concerns of the hobby.
Mr. Silver has done a fine job of blending amateur radio with the Dummies editorial style, to present ham radio in plain-language, for those who have always wondered, but didn't know where to start. Like all of the Dummies books, it includes the list of Tens.
It won't help you to prepare for the test specifically--there are different question-pool books that explain the technical, and highly applicable to the real-world, nitty-gritty that's needed to pass the (U.S. FCC) Technician exam.
This book is also good for the already-licensed hams who want to quickly get up to speed on different operating aspects. Non hams, by the time they finish looking over the book, should have a good idea if they want to hike into the forest to explore further and possibly take the steps towards getting licensed. There are numerous links and resources for those who wish to continue learning about this hobby.
As a fairly new ham myself, and having entered the hobby knowing nothing about it, I'm sensitive to the fact that people I talk to also might not know much about the hobby. It's hard to know where to start, when trying to explain it. Rather than launch into techno-speak and cause people's eyes to glaze over, I can now hand them this book. It's a very easy way to introduce folks to the hobby.
Perhaps I might sound very over-the-top about all this--and you're probably right--but since getting into this hobby, I have learned so many things that I might not have been exposed to otherwise.

Q5 4. Mai 2004
Von Myles Carpeneto - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Q5 is not a rating. In radio lingo, it means excellent readability.
If you are thinking about getting into Amateur Radio, this is the book you should read first. If the ink is still wet on your FCC license, this is the book you should read now. Even if you have a collection of tickets dating back to Marconi, this is the book you should read to make sure you are up to date; you'll find something interesting that you didn't know in this book. I think HRFD is the most comprehensive and readable overview of Amateur Radio available.
Let me emphasize that word "overview." Will you be able to take and pass your Technician License test after reading this book? The answer is "NO!" You will still need to study one or more of the fine ARRL test prep books before you sit for your exam. HRFD provides very little depth on any individual topic; HRFD's strength lies in providing a broad, very readable survey of the many aspects of ham radio. It has something to say about how to get a license; what licenses are available; the various radio modes of AM, FM, SSB, CW and RTTY; buying equipment; on-air etiquette; DXing; contesting; Public Service opportunities; low power operating; amateur TV; TOR; PSK; Packet; WLAN; satellite; and, computer resources for learning more, to name a few topics.
So why do I recommend reading HRFD first? Because the test prep books are focused on preparing you to pass an exam. HRFD is focused on giving you a perspective that will help make relevant the cold facts you will learn from the test prep book.
If you have a relatively new license, like I do, you know there is still a lot to learn about this hobby, or should I say avocation. HRFD is a good place to discover more about the various things you can do with your license. It's like having an Elmer at your elbow. On the other hand, if you want to learn about capacitance, resistance, inductance and oscillation so that you can go for your Amateur Extra license, take a hike; this is not the book you need.
For the old-timers, and you know that term has nothing to do with your age or your attitude, you know that amateur radio is constantly evolving. Maybe you haven't been able to spend the time needed to keep up with the field because you have decided that raising your family is more important than raising a DX contact. Whatever the reason, if you need a quick overview about any Amateur Radio area, reading HRFD is a quicker way to get back up to date than reading all your old, unread QST and CQ magazines. And if you need more depth, HRFD will tell you where to find the latest information, and a lot of it is only computer keystroke away.
As you can see, I am really impressed with this book. The ARRL manuals are good at being very comprehensive with whatever they cover. Unfortunately, that completeness often comes with a dryness of both style and format. The 300+ pages of HRFD, on the other hand, are an easy read. I recommend that you get HRFD now; it's worth the price. Don't wait for second hand copies to start showing up in the used books department. HRFD is a keeper, so you might have a long wait otherwise.

Good but slightly out of date 28. März 2009
Von William W. Squire - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Studying for the FCC license, I looked for a simple manual to learn theory, techniques and regulations . I have always liked books in the "for dummies" series. I was able to find almost everything I needed to learn what I wanted to know with a minimum effort. I would have preferred to have a copy of the regulation included in the apendex, but the reference to the web included is easy to use. I will now use this book for continued reference, and advanced licenses.

Terrific reference 3. Juli 2004
Von A long-time ham operator - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Ward Silver's "Dummies" book is terrific for beginners and experienced hams alike. It's not about the technical details of the hobby, really, but about how to get into ham radio and most of operating basics. I was licensed many years ago, but after a few years of operating, went into "hibernation" for about 20 years before rediscovering ham radio. This book has helped me catch up on all of the advances made in the last two decades. What's really helpful are all the references to other sources (such as websites) that take you deeper into the hobby. An outstanding addition to my "ham shack"!
