New member here, hoping to add some value! I am returning to amateur radio after a very long period of inactivity, and have been looking for some reading material to jump start coming up to speed on more recent technology topics. I have discovered a new book which may be of interest to Nashua ARC members. This is actually a revised 4th edition (published 2017) of a book that has been around for some time. Title: Communications Receivers: Principles and Design. This is an engineering textbook, so it is quite technical but strikes a balance between theory and practice. A bit pricey, but it is a virtual goldmine of information, and includes hundreds of references and suggestions for further reading. At 600+ pages, it is not something most will read and understand in a few evenings. Greatly expanded coverage of SDR technology alone is worth the price, IMHO. I highly recommend this book for those who wish to gain an in depth understanding of the topics covered. This book might be suitable as the basis for a series of Tech Night sessions.
