This is the 17th edition of tha Radio Handbook published in 1967, although now dated it will be of interest to those who have an interest in homebuilt valve (tube) amateur radio practice in the late 1960 era.
This edition contains probably the final evolution of the HBR receiver series originaly the design of Ted Crosby W6TC, and the matching SSB transmitter, described as the the Deluxe HBR receiver, and the Deluxe HBT-200 transmitter / exiter. Worth having the book for those two articles alone.
There isn't much mention of transistorised equipment, but more interesting because of that, just limited to the things that transistors were usable for at the time.
It makes a nice companion to the ARRL Radio Amateurs Handbooks of the time (later known as the ARRL Handbook for the Radio Amateur).
Not really recomended for an absolute newbie to the world valved radio and electronic engineering, but if you managed basic Physics and Maths you should be able to cope.
