Publisher Description

In this sweeping history, author Spurgeon G. Roscoe takes a look at the world of amateur radio in North America and the special role the Halifax Amateur Radio Club (HARC), of which he is a member, played in it, from the time of the World Wars all the way to the present day. Roscoe presents an account that is at once intimate and wide-ranging, covering topics from amateur radio’s role on the Canadian ships of the 1920s and ’30s and during wartime to the involvement of women in the craft, to the technical details of how some of the equipment involved has evolved over time, to a detailed look at the American Radio Relay League and what has appeared in the pages of its membership journal, QST, over its many years in circulation. His own deep, nearly lifelong involvement in amateur radio not only brings a deep base of knowledge to this ambitious project, but a particularly penetrating and oftentimes sentimental lens to it, too—particularly when it comes to documenting the activities of HARC and the many members who have passed in and out of it over the years. Expansive and detailed at once, Radio History: Amateur Radio is essential reading for anyone involved or interested in the hobby worldwide.
