Description - Ham Radio for Dummies by H. Ward Silver
* Favorable media coverage and heightened awareness of emergency and disaster preparedness are increasing public interest in amateur or "ham" radio * In a disaster situation, ham radio is often the only reliable method of communication; ham operators handle messages for police and other public service organizations during hurricanes, earthquakes, search-and-rescue operations, and events such as the Oklahoma City bombing, the space shuttle recovery effort, and the 2003 blackout * Material thoroughly explains what ham radio is, what readers need to get started, and how to become a licensed operator * Author Ward Silver has been a licensed amateur radio operator for thirty-one years; he is a contributing editor to QST (the American Radio Relay League's national ham radio magazine), where he writes a new monthly column for beginners called "Hands-On Radio"
