Here is a good selection of practical, task-oriented programs for those who understand the analytical potential of the personal computer. Forty-two programs on amateur radio and electronics make this a valuable and time-saving tool. The programs have been tested, and all work as presented on both the Commodore 64 and the Commodore 128 in 64 mode. Along with the programs the author provides: 
• useful equations such as capacitance, impedance, inductance, length, and reactance 
• diagrams such as parabolic dish, voltage regulator, LC tuned tank circuit, instrumentation amplifier. monostable & a stable circuit, triangle waveform oscillator, and operational amplifier 
• sample runs for many programs 
A final section shows how to import a BASIC program from any computer with a 300 baud RS·232C serial port to either a Commodore 64 or Commodore 128 computer. Amateur rodio hobbyists, engineers, serious programmers, and technicians alike will find this baok a useful addition to their computer library.
