Books on receiver/transceiver design

Postby va3sax » Thu Oct 14, 2010 8:04 pm

I came back recently to a project that I had been starting the groundwork for back in high school when I first got my ticket. The general idea of it is to assemble a fully homebrew high performance receiver with the possibility of turning it into a transceiver in the long run.

What I wanted to ask is if anyone has recommendations on books that might help me along through the design process.

Antique Electronic Supply has a book called building your first regen receiver. I haven't ordered it yet, but want to. After I finish my slat board transmitter, I will be wanting to build a matching receiver for it too. If you happen to find any good books, please share them with us!

I might take a look at that Bill. I've long found regens to be an interesting receiver design.

An ambitious undetaking, to be sure. Not a book, but check this site from time to time:
