Hi Don and all on the reflectors!
Well just my 2 cents worth but my first VHF handbook was RSGB's VHF/UHF
Handbook. Was very informative in a complete easy to follow text. I would
recommend it to anyone looking to break into the world of VHF/UHF and follow
up with the second in the series VHF DX Book. Both worth the few dollars'
education they offer. And they both got me started over a year ago.
Funny thing, is I just picked it up off the shelf day before last and have
started to re-read it for the 5th time. And still having a blast reading it.
Kind of wished that the ARRL had some texts other than the UHF/Microwave
books they offer. I mean one has to start somewhere and not just jump into
UHF/Microwave. (which is where most of us VHF'ers head eventually!) Also
lets you know where American hams have their roots (HF) unlike our EU
counterparts who have excelled in VHF/UHF communications.
We need more of the old ELMERS like N2LIV, W1AIM, K1LPS, K1WHS (to name a
few) and a few others to get together and write a companion text. Anyway
just my 2 cents worth.

As I prepared to write my monthly article for the local ham club
newsletter - or more accurately trying to think up something to write
about - I was looking for inspiration on my bookshelves. This led me to the
What book(s) do you consider required reading for hams new to VHF?
I'll start with two fine RSGB publications, The VHF DX Book and The VHF/UHF
Do you agree with me? What are your suggestions?
