Ade Weiss's New Book

Big news on the QRP/homebrew literature front. One of the titans of the genre, Ade Weiss, has released another amazing book about our hobby. I really enjoyed Ade's first history of QRP, and, because it covers a more recent period (1968-1981), I think this new this one is even more interesting. I took a portion of it with me on the train yesterday (and will be doing the same for the rest of the week!) The book is a wonderful technical history. It is filled with interesting stories and with very illuminating schematics and technical discussions. Ade takes us through the exciting early days transistor transmitters and direct conversion receivers. There is a lot of discussion of the commercial rigs that we've come to know and love -- lots of HW8s and Argonauts. And Ade has made it all available as a free download! Thanks Ade!
