Electronic Communication has been one of the most popular textbooks in its field for many years. This expandedSixth Edition utilizes the same user friendly format to prepare students for the operation, installation, and maintenance of most modern electronic and radio communication systems. Performance objectives have been added to each chapter to guide student focus. Electronic Communication provides information on the interrelationship of voltage, current, resistance, inductance, and capacitance as well as discussions of various active devices currently in use. While the text emphasizes semiconductor devices and circuitry, it still retains an adequate amount of vacuum tube theory. In addition, this edition features up-to-date coverage of digital communications and fiber optics, topics that are critical to the skills development of today's communication student. To reinforce understanding of subjects just covered, check-up quizzes are inserted every few pages in most chapters, with answers on the next turned page. End-of-chapter questions, which include number references to the section or figure where the answer can be found, check comprehension of the entire chapter's material. Bold letters prefixing many end-of-chapter questions indicate that a similar question may appear in one of the specific certification license tests.

The Lab Manual has been expanded to include more experiments that correlate with the revisions made to the text. As always, the manual's experiments reinforce text content and are an integrated part of the total package.

When I first opened this book at the Harvard Co-Op bookshop I was amazed. I said this man knows what he is talking about. I immediately bought the book and read more. Mr. Shrader, is a long time Amateur and Commercial Radio Operator who has taught at the University level although he only has a high school education. This is profound recognition of his grasp of the subject matter. No intelectual mumbo-jumbo here! This is EXCELLENT food for the mind and produces an excellent understanding based upon the author's actual experience with range from spark to present day technology.

Sound fundamentals in electricity with added interest in communications, especially Amatuer Radio. Covers points not seen in dozens of other books about electronics. Great to frame a two or three course curriculum in high school.
