Homebrew-The true spirit of Ham Radio       Save your tuna cans and Altoids tins.   Everything from a voice operated CW transmitter to                                                making a transmitter or receiver from a derelict CFL.    Real evil genius stuff here.

General information about radio and related topics   This is the Bell Systems archive (1922-1983).                                                       There is more information about radio than                                                            you can shake a stick at. Worth the look.    Lots of Digital Communications info here.
