Basic Radio - Understanding the Key Building Blocks

Radio is all around us — in our cars, our cell phones, our homes — but many of us don’t know how this technology works. Basic Radio is an introduction to the key building blocks of radio: receivers, transmitters, antennas, propagation, radionavigation, and radiolocation. Simple projects included in the book help reinforce the concepts and turn theory into practice.


Basic Radio builds upon knowledge of elementary electronic concepts as presented in ARRL’s Understanding Basic Electronics. Once you’ve mastered the material found in Basic Radio, you’ll be ready to take on the advanced topics presented in The ARRL Handbook for Radio Communications.


Joel Hallas, W1ZR, has been a radar and telecommunications systems engineer, engineering manager, telecommunications, executive, college teacher, and Technical Editor of ARRL’s membership journal, QST. He has earned BS and MS degrees in electrical engineering.
