Ham Publications For Sale:

Some are vintage, and some more modern.
All are in excellent condition, unless listed otherwise.

Sylvania Tube Manual
This tube manual has a 1951 date in it, and is the 8th
edition of the Sylvania "Technical Manual".
It starts with 0A5 tube and goes up thru 20CP4 CRTs,
with a lot of 6 volt tubes in between.  It also includes
such tubes as 80, 117L7, etc.
The book is in good shape, although the pages are slightly
yellowed (what would one expect for a 58 year old book!).

Bash Book
This is the book that started it all, back in the 1970's.
"General Class Test Guide, The Final Exam" listing all of
the General Class questions and answers. Nice condition. $8

1974, 13th edition, smaller size
pages show yellowing $8

W2AB's "Second Op"
This is the large (about a foot in diameter) "wheel"
that has a lot of DX information on it.
By turning the wheel to the call sign prefix, the continent,
zone, and country is shown, along with great circle beam
headings from different parts of the country. In another
area, postage rates are shown, but I am certain that info
is outdated.

It is in good condition. $10
