Understanding Propagation Free eBook

Every radio ham I every knew likes a bargain and the cheaper the better. So get over G0KYA's blog to pick up a free ebook in PDF format.

In 2008/2009 Alan Melia G3NYK and Steve Nichols G0KYA wrote a series of features on understanding LF and HF propagation for RadCom, the Radio Society of Great Britain's RSGB magazine. Steve has managed to persuade the RSGB to let him to put them together into a single document, which is now freely available for amateurs worldwide to download. If you don't know much about propagation it is a great place to start exploring its mysteries. Even if, like me, you have the magazines with original articles it is great to have them all together in one place like this. Makes me wonder if buying one of those electronic book devices aka eReader or Kindle is not starting to make a lot of sense. Does Kindle do PDFs? I have no idea!
Steve is also the author of a book on ‘Stealth Antennas’ available from here.


  1. Thanks for that. If it read MS Word docs I would have had one years ago. I have loads of stuff that I would carry with me that is in that format. If I get one I expect I will have to spend forever converting those docs to PDF or something else the Kindle can read.
