Hi folks, I have finally finished my book for amateur radio operators and short wave listeners who want to know more about SDR.
It is called “An Introduction to HF Software Defined Radio”.
You can read a summary and order a copy at Amazon (UK, DE, FR, EU or COM) or at https://www.createspace.com/4845320.
The book is for amateur radio operators and anyone who wants a technical introduction to software defined radio receivers and transceivers, for the high frequency and short wave bands. Most of the concepts are illustrated with helpful diagrams and pictures. It covers; the different types of SDR, how they work, tests used to measure their performance, the components of a typical direct conversion SDR, code in the FPGA, and the elements making up SDR software for the PC.
76 pages, full colour, large 11″x 8 1/2″ format (for the diagrams), many diagrams and tables, hardly any maths or software code.
