About the Book

This is a hardback copy of the The ‘Radio’ Handbook Twenty-Second Edition. This is when Howard W. Sams & Company, Inc. took over from Engineers and Editors.

This copy of the book is in better than average condition condition for its age. The inside front cover has a former owner’s name on it. That was all the writing I could find, but I did not check each of the 1200 pages for writing.
