Radio Receivers – Barkan, Zhdanov

We now come to Radio Receivers by V. Barkan and V. Zhdanov

BarkanZhdanov-RadioReceivers

This book covers all topics related to radio receivers right from fundamentals to audio, video amplifiers and receivers. Also discussed are various bands of operation.  It starts from
amplifiers (Chapters 2 to 6) to detectors (Chapters 7 onwards). It also has sections on FM Signals, Long Wave and Short Waves. Overall   it is a comprehensive book on radar technology.

The book was translated from the Russian by V. Valessyuk and B. Kuznetsov and published by Mir Publishers in1970.

    Great Damitr!
    Good book!
    Like Soviet technology.
    In the Soviet era the guys had books of science and technology to manufacture everything: tires, tanks (I have several books), missiles, cranes …various handbooks.
