Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This small slim volume is well illustrated. Trying to cover the development of radio from the 1920s to the 1970s in 46 pages, it has useful information for new students in this field. It is not a comprehensive list of manufacturers or models.

Format: Paperback
This is a small basic publication with little detail and is best suited for a childs introduction to the subject.
Not worth the postage cost.
