Riding the Shortwaves: Exploring the Magic of Amateur Radio
New July 2012 Release by Don Keith (Paperback) and also available in Kindle edition!

"People have been urging me to put these articles into book form," Keith says.
 "I have taken some of the ones that folks seemed to enjoy most or that they tell me they
 learned the most from and added a bunch more that I have been working on for a while.
 That's the book! It is simply one man's love sonnet to the world's greatest hobby."
