by Peter Hart, G3SJX
25 years of Hart Reviews is a collection of every single review Peter Hart, G3SJX has published in RadCom from 1979-2004. RadCom's leading equipment reviewer has covered some of the most significant changes to radio technology in the last 25 years. Peter has covered the first amateur radio equipment to include microcontrollers which, in turn, made possible the single tuning knob digital frequency synthesiser and the ability to make stable oscillators at VHF. This made viable the up-conversion broadband superhet architecture which forms the basis of virtually all successive designs up until the present day. Nearly 100 equipment reviews are included in this book and cover every conceivable type of transceiver, including a variety of antennas and amplifiers as well. This book is not only a fascinating view of 25 years of amateur radio equipment but is a valuable guide to the new and second hand buyer of equipment.
