Sadly I didn't find the book this book as useful as the other reviewers. It starts basic enough with the inductance of a piece of wire, but even this is confusing as wire diameter is given in mills (thousandths of an inch) and all the formulae use cms. After this it just got confusing, not the authors fault but my poor maths, and Smith charts always make my head spin. I spent many years in the electronics industry and hold a ham licence. Also I think I have a reasonable practical knowledge of electronics, so I believe you need to be a good to better than average ham to gain from this book, it's not aimed at the likes of me.
