A hobbyist's guide to radio-frequency circuit theory, experimentation, and practical applications. This hands-on introduction aims to demystify that part of the electromagnetic spectrum known as the radio frequency band, explaining in nontechnical language what RF is and how it is different from other electromagnetic frequencies. The book covers the basics of receiver operation, the proper use and repair of components in RF circuits, and principles of low-frequency to microwave radio signal propagation. It also shows hobbyists how to design and build their own RF amplifiers, pre-selectors, signal generators, inductor coils, antennas, microwave circuits, and other devices.

Take the fastest route to high-quality radio frequency circuits... SECRETS OF RF CIRCUIT DESIGN, Second Edition follow up on the best-selling first Edition, this revised and updated guide gives you the best ways to design, build, and test today's radio frequency (RF) circuits. It's filled with projects and experiments that make it easy to apply RF principles to real-life applications. Popular electronics writer Joe Carr takes you step by step through functional projects in this intermediate-level handbook. He also provides parts lists and component sources for every project, in chapters that cover how to: Design and build radio receiver circuits, Rf bridges, amplifiers, receiver preselectors, simplified spectrum analyzers, and time domain reflectometers.; Select, use, maintain, and repair variable capacitors.; Design and wind inductor coils for radio circuits.; Construct and ground simple wire antennas. You'll find detailed coverage of simple radio frequency insturments, as well as UHF and microwave components. Included is a money-saving coupon for a companion diskette that contains a Windows-executable program for calculating RF circuit component values, coil-winding parameters, and more.About the Author:
