Some sets are expensive and many customers will be hesitant before parting with their money. Unfortunately, it is often difficult for the newcomer to arrive at a sensible decision, especially where the main area of interest is for aeronautical use. Often the sophisticated and comprehensive receiver which is commonplace today may well prove to be over specified, complicated to use and expensive. This guide is for those readers who simply wish to have some impartial advice on what air traffic control transmissions are all about, and how to go about choosing a suitable receiver. Then, having decided upon the most appropriate piece of equipment, the book deals with the next question raised by most readers - how can we improve the reception of the messages by the use of external antennas, amplifiers and tuners? The new edition of this highly popular guide has been fully updated to include all the latest developments in the field. Contents include: The legal position- Airband receivers- Antenna systems- Shortwave (HF) radio- UK airfields- Radio frequencies- Weather broadcasts- Datalink systems- 8.33 Channel proposals
