     I have the following books related to radio and vacuum tubes for sale.
Shipping costs for USPS media mail are $3.50 for the first book and $1.50
for each additional book.  Some books will require additional postage due to
their weight and are noted as such.  I cannot accept PayPal as I have
cancelled my account with them due to the amount of fraud, phishing, and
spoofs that have been taking place.  Cheques, money oreders, and green


Jasik, H.
Antenna Engineering Handbook
McGraw-Hill, 1961, cloth, G/-, $25.00
Minor wear to cover and spine, moderate wear at cover corners, hinges, and
spine ends.  No markings found on pages.  Small tear on one page.  An
extensive reference book on antennas, including long-wire, helical, loop,
slots, horns, corner reflectors, refelctors, low-frequency, AM/FM/TV
broadcast, direction-finding, and numerous others. This is a heavy book and
will require extra postage.

Lenk, John D.
Handbook of Simplified Solid-State Circuit Design
Prentice-Hall, 1971, 0-13-381731-8, cloth, VG+/G-, $5.00
A highly sought-after reference on solid-state circuit design, this is an
exceptionally clean copy, hnaving only minor bumping to spine ends and cover
corners.  Dustjacket is faded along spine from exposure to light, has 1"
tear at lower right front corner, other minor tears along edge.

LePage, William R, and Samuel Seely
General Network Analysis
McGraw-Hill, 1952, hbk, VG-/-, $10.00
Owner's name on FFEP.  Very minor rubbing overall.  No markings on pages,
making this a very clean copy of a classic text on network analysis.

Linvill, J.G. and J.F. Gibbons
Transistors and Active Circuits
McGraw-Hill, 1961, cloth, VG+/-, $25.00
Very little wear to covers and spine.  Owner's name inside front cover.
Otherwise spotless throughout.  Linvill was one of the pioneers in the
applications of transistors to linear circuits.  Extensive discussion of the
theory and properties of bipolar transistors with sections on the early days
of Field Effect and Unijunction transistors.  Additional chapters on linear
models, two-port networks, stability, amplifiers, feedback, and regenerative
switching.  An exceptionally clean copy.

Marcus, Abraham and William Marcus
Elements of Radio
5th ed., Prentice-Hall, 1965, decorative cloth, VG-/-, $10.00
No internal markings found.  Slight rubbing over cover and spine with slight
bumping to cover corners and spine ends, very slight wear to cover corners
and spine ends.  A reasonably clean copy of a well known and respected
textbook on vacuum tube radio receivers and electronics, with an entire
chapter of 20 pages discussing the transistor, which is quite a bit more
than the previous edition.

Martin, Thomas L.
Ultrahigh Frequency Engineering
Prentice-Hall, 1950, cloth, G/-, $15.00
Owner's name inside front cover, notes in pencil on FFEP, some pencil notes
on pages.  Cover has light rubbing overall, slight wear to corners and spine
ends.  This text contains a great deal of information relating to early UHF
radar development, including klystrons, magnetrons, amplifiers, waveguides,
resonators, and much more.

MIT Staff
Magnetic Circuits and Transformers
Wiley, 1943, cloth, G+/-, $35.00
Slight wear overall, owner's name inside FC and on block edge.  One of the
most substantial books written on magnetism and transformers, this book is
an essential reference for designers of inductors and transformers.

Radio, RF, and Video Applications
Motorola, 1991, paperback, VG-/-, $10.00
No markings inside or outside, slight bend on upper right corner of front
cover and first ten pages, small area of edge wear to front cover in bend
area.  This book contains numerous applications notes and engineering
bulletins from Motorola, published at a time when Motorola was considered a
world leader in discrete semiconductor manufacturing, unlike today.
