1 American Radio Relay League Qst Devoted Entirely To Amateur Radio October 1943 (Vol. XXVII No. 10)
West Hartford, CT American Radio Relay League 1943 1st Edition; 1st Printing Magazine Good+ 
B&W Illustrations; This is a trade sized magazine in Good+ condition and was issued without a dust jacket. The rear magazine cover has cracked nearly completely and there are several small chips missing. The text pages are clean and bright. "Amateur radio (also called ham radio) describes the use of radio frequency spectrum for purposes of non-commercial exchange of messages, wireless experimentation, self-training, private recreation, radiosport, contesting, and emergency communication. The term "amateur" is used to specify "a duly authorised person interested in radioelectric practice with a purely personal aim and without pecuniary interest; " (either direct monetary or other similar reward) and to differentiate it from commercial broadcasting, public safety (such as police and fire) , or professional two-way radio services (such as maritime, aviation, taxis, etc. ). The amateur radio service (amateur service and amateur-satellite service) is established by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) through the International Telecommunication Regulations. National governments regulate technical and operational characteristics of transmissions and issue individual stations licenses with an identifying call sign."

2 American Telephone and Telegraph Company Principles Of Electricity Applied To Telephone And Telegraph Work A Training Course Text Prepared for Employees of the Long Lines Department
New York American Telephone and Telegraph Company 1953 Hardcover Very Good 
B&W Illustrations; This book is from the testing laboratory of the American Telephone and Telegraph Company. This is an oversized hardback book. The book is in Very Good condition and was likely issued without a dust jacket. The spine ends and corners of the book covers have some light rubbing and wear. The front cover has a smallish spot of scratching. The text pages are clean and bright. There is an ink stamped "testing department" mark on the front endpaper. The rear pastedown page has a library card pocket with the same inkstamp. "The history of AT&T dates back to the invention of the telephone itself. The Bell Telephone Company was established in 1879 by Alexander Graham Bell, the inventor of the telephone. Bell also established American Telephone and Telegraph Company in 1885, which acquired the Bell Telephone Company and became the primary phone company in the United States. This company maintained a monopoly on telephone service in the United States until anti-trust regulators split the company in 1982. AT&T Corporation was eventually purchased by one of its Baby Bells, the former Southwestern Bell, in 2005 and the combined company became known as AT&T Inc." This is the first update to the guidebook since 1938 and covers new technologies added since that time.

Graphs; This book is in Very Good+ condition and was issued without a dust jacket. The book and its contents are in mostly clean, bright condition. There is some ground-in dust to the composite covers. The text pages are clean and bright. "Wireless telegraphy is a method of conveying written or typed ("graphic") information over a distance ("tele") using established telegraphic techniques but without the use of interconnecting wires. Although it is now used as a historical term for early telegraphic systems which employed radio waves as the communication medium, when the term originated in the late 19th century it also applied to other types of wireless telegraphy, such as photoelectric and induction telegraphy. Wireless telegraphy came to mean Morse code transmitted by radio waves, discovered by Heinrich Hertz in 1886 (and thus initially referred to as "Hertzian waves"). The primitive spark gap transmitters used until World War 1 could not transmit audio signals. Instead the operator would tap out the code on a telegraph key, turning the transmitter on only while the key was depressed and thus producing short ("dot") and long ("dash") pulses of radio waves, groups of which comprised the letters and other symbols of the Morse code. Under appropriate conditions (proximity, weather, etc. ) , the signals could be heard in the earphones of the receiving operator who would translate them back into text."

Graphs; This book is in Very Good+ condition and was issued without a dust jacket. The book and its contents are in mostly clean, bright condition. There is some ground-in dust to the composite covers. The text pages are clean and bright. "Radio is the technology of using radio waves to carry information, such as sound, by systematically modulating properties of electromagnetic energy waves transmitted through space, such as their amplitude, frequency, phase, or pulse width. [n 1] When radio waves strike an electrical conductor, the oscillating fields induce an alternating current in the conductor. The information in the waves can be extracted and transformed back into its original form. Radio systems need a transmitter to modulate (change) some property of the energy produced to impress a signal on it, for example using amplitude modulation or angle modulation (which can be frequency modulation or phase modulation). Radio systems also need an antenna to convert electric currents into radio waves, and radio waves into an electric current. An antenna can be used for both transmitting and receiving. The electrical resonance of tuned circuits in radios allow individual stations to be selected. The electromagnetic wave is intercepted by a tuned receiving antenna. A radio receiver receives its input from an antenna and converts it into a form that is usable for the consumer, such as sound, pictures, digital data, measurement values, navigational positions, etc."

There is some ground-in dust to the composite covers. The text pages are clean and bright. "In radio communications, a radio receiver (radio) is an electronic device that receives radio waves and converts the information carried by them to a usable form. It is used with an antenna. The antenna intercepts radio waves (electromagnetic waves) and converts them to tiny alternating currents which are applied to the receiver, and the receiver extracts the desired information. The receiver uses electronic filters to separate the desired radio frequency signal from all the other signals picked up by the antenna, an electronic amplifier to increase the power of the signal for further processing, and finally recovers the desired information through demodulation."

Its official program name was Space Transportation System (STS) , taken from a 1969 plan for a system of reusable spacecraft of which it was the only item funded for development. The first of four orbital test flights occurred in 1981, leading to operational flights beginning in 1982. Five complete Shuttle systems were built and used on a total of 135 missions from 1981 to 2011, launched from the Kennedy Space Center (KSC) in Florida. Operational missions launched numerous satellites, interplanetary probes, and the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) ; conducted science experiments in orbit; and participated in construction and servicing of the International Space Station. The Shuttle fleet's total mission time was 1322 days, 19 hours, 21 minutes and 23 seconds."

In 1922, the term "radiotrician" was coined for NRI graduates and registered with the U. S. Patent office in 1928. NRI conducted its training courses through mailed lessons, a form of asynchronous learning. The first such home-study courses NRI offered were in radio repair (transmitters and receivers) and radio telegraphy & telephony. These courses were designed to be comprehensive, covering all facets of radio technology, including: radio operation, broadcasting, manufacturing, sales, and service."
