Radio Circuits: A Step By Step Survey 1966 - Vintage Servicing Book

“Radio Circuits: A Step By Step Survey” (1966, 244 pages). This popular book explains in simple language and in easy stages all the varieties of circuits that are found in radio receivers. It does this by taking separately each stage of the receiver, piece by piece, and explaining it without the complication of all the associated circuits around it. In this manner every detail can be absorbed easily by the reader, who is not obliged to cope with more than can be assimilated at any one time. As the reader acquires familiarity with several parts, however, he is introduced to their mutual association with one another, and he is finally led to an understanding of the complete circuit of a receiver. The first 31 chapters provide the basic description and understanding of how each circuit in a vacuum tube based radio works. Those chapters are then followed by chapters 32-36 which cover vacuum tube based FM and AM/FM circuits. Chapter 36 and on then cover transistorized circuits and car radio. Any reader who understands what a resistor, a capacitor, a coil and a vacuum tube are can learn from this book about how these components are combined to make radio receivers perform their function. The book does not delve into a scientific explanation radio theory. It covers the practical explanation of the theory of radio operation without delving into the mathematics behind it.
