The HF bands are a magical place where just about anything is possible, from nattering to friends around the country on a 'net', making new friends on different continents, chasing stations in rare and distant locations, taking part in a contest, conversing using your computer over the air, sending images or using Morse code - the possibilities are nearly endless. This is where HF Amateur Radio for Everyone steps in by providing you with an invaluable guide to what you need to know about these lower frequencies.
HF Amateur Radio for Everyone is not just for those who have experienced their first operating steps on the VHF bands but is also a primer for those who are considering things as diverse as their propagation and right antenna to use, through what the various HF bands offer and onto what to consider when choosing your new transceiver. You will find chapters containing detailed descriptions of the different HF bands, basic explanations of HF propagation, the different modes in use, as well as a guide to the equipment and antennas you will need to become a successful and efficient HF operator. Guidance on planning your home, mobile or portable HF station, operating techniques, awards and much more.
If you are newly licensed, or perhaps licensed for a while but not ventured lower in frequency than VHF, or find the world of HF radio daunting, or even simply have unanswered questions, then in short, HF Amateur Radio for Everyone is for you. It will provide you with the knowledge and confidence to explore the HF bands for the first time as well as providing a few practical weekend projects for you to enjoy and this book will be a valuable addition to any amateur radio bookshelf.
