The areas included on the site cover cellular telecommunications (cell or mobile phone) technology, electronics and radio components (from resistors and capacitors to crystals and semiconductors), satellites (including GPS and satellite TV), radio broadcasting, radio receivers (including the superhet), radio signal propagation, private mobile radio (PMR), radio and electronics history (including Volta, Morse, Fleming and many more), and the latest technology news.
This may appear as a plug for the hobby of Amatuer Radio (as I am proudly a 'ham') but I assure you it's not.
There is no better place than the the classes given by Amateur Radio clubs and leagues to learn the basics of radio and radio transmission. Yes, more than is required for radio telemetry systems will be learned but knowledge cannot harm.
It is a personal belief that every one involved with radio, regardless of the connection, should be a 'ham'. Many 'radio engineers' will argue that Amateur Radio is for, well, amateurs. They, of course, are 'professionals'.
The argument loses weight when one asks a customer whether they would rather have their equipment repaired by someone calling themselves a 'professional' or by an engineer who is also a 'ham' who truly loves radio, 'amateur' being derived from the word 'amour' meaning love.
