Vol.2 The Young Amateurs Guide to Radio Physics By Dr. James Popoff, AJ4XI
eBook (PDF): $3.79

Volume Two continues our introduction to radio-electronics, but expands the topics in depth and introduces vectors, matrices, linear algebra, and statistics to perform waveform analysis and... More > construction of our GAIA signal (Global Amateur Interferometer Array). We follow up with data compression using the discrete cosine transform and deconstruct and reconstruct a JPEG digital image. Earth's geographical coordinates are projected into space as celestial coordinates and Mars is located for configuring our local "link function" to design our GAIA array. The MMARS is discussed (Mars Mission Amateur Radio System), and the coding effort for coordinating GAIA is assessed and examples are illustrated. We lay the foundation for the actual design and deployment of a GAIA supervised by a MMARS. Computing theory is introduced at length. Volumes One and Two provide most of the mathematical and physical theory and methods for the remaining six volumes that ultimately produce a functioning interplanetary radio station!< Less
The Young Amateur's Guide to Radio Physics: Tools For Young Peoples' Active Participation in Interplanetary Science and Exploration Using Amateur Radio, and Introducing MMARS and GAIA---Mars Mission Amateur Radio System and Global Amateur Interferometer A By Dr. James Popoff, AJ4XI

The value proposition for the book is to learn radio physics, pass the FCC Technician license exam, learn how to construct our own radio transceiver, and finally, learn how to design, equip, and... More > operate an amateur radio station. Although there's no guarantee of success, the end result should be a person who is a capable radio-electronics technician, who can build things that are useful. It does this in eight volumes of 150 to 200 pages each. In a larger sense it encourages young people and kids to engage in science and engineering through participation in amateur radio. The motivation is the opportunity for youngsters to communicate regularly with our interplanetary explorers and, in dialogue with them, to participate in the Interplanetary Age as scientist-explorers themselves. I equip the reader with enough mathematics, science, and engineering know-how for she or he to be able to collaborate with other radio amateurs in the initiative I call the “MMARS and GAIA project" and join the world of amateur radio.< Less
