for Amateur Operators 5th Edition
By Fred Swainston ISBN: 0 646 35449 5

This book has been written as a study guide to cover the Australian Communications Authority syllabus for Australian Standard and Advanced Theory Amateur Operator Certificates of Proficiency. The book contains the theory necessary to pass the examinations to become an amateur radio operator.

The material presented in this book has been written to be concise and easy to understand with the view to provide the reader with a holistic understanding of radio and electronics.

The intention is to assist those who have little or no knowledge of radio theory or electronics, but also to be a useful reference to those working in the radio and electronics industry. It is expected that the book could be used as a complete self contained study guide or in classroom facilitator led sessions. Computer based training packages have been developed to supplement the contents of the book.

The subjects in the book have been presented in a logical sequence with test questions at the end of each chapter, covering key points in the text. A separate chapter relating to the mathematics required in radio and electronics has been included to assist those studying for the examinations.

100's of Sample theory questions selected from the examination question banks have been included for both Standard and Amateur Operator Certificate of Proficiency.

Now includes the regulations CD tutorial. All you need to pass the regulations examination.

The Radio Theory Hand Book covers:
