SolderSmoke - Global Adventures in Wireless Electronics (U.S. version)

ByBill Meara

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
SolderSmoke is the story of a secret, round-the-world, after-hours life in electronics. Bill Meara started out as a normal kid, but around the age of 12 he got interested in radio... To make matters worse, when he got older he became a diplomat. In all of the places he has lived, his hobby caused him to seek out like-minded radio fiends, to stay up late into the night working on strange projects, and to build embarrassingly large antennas above innocent foreign neighborhoods. SolderSmoke takes you into the world of an expatriate geek. It is a technical memoir filled with funny stories and with serious descriptions of Bill's struggles to truly understand the theory behind the equipment that he built.(THIS VERSION SHIPS FROM A U.S. PRINTER)
