Radio scanners are rapidly increasing in popularity, opening a whole realm to short wave listening. Employing the latest in today technology they are far more than a short wave receiver with extended frequency coverage. They offer a host of new features which revolutionise listening and enable the listener to pick up signals which could not be heard before. This book aims to cater for the new breed of scanner listener. Topics covered in the book include: radio wave propagation; types of transmission which can be heard; how a scanner operates; aerials; the radio frequency spectrum (including a frequency list); operating procedures; broadcast bands; amateur radio; and citizen's band. In addition to this there is an appendix which includes a glossary of essential terminology and callsign prefix lists. The book should provide a useful reference to scanner listeners, those who own world band radios and anyone with an interest of any description.
