RF components and circuits by Joseph J Carr( )

20 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and held by 1,726 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Some basic knowledge of electronics is assumed, but the essential features of RF are fully described, including the important topic of receiver dynamic which is often overlooked in basic textbooks. The theory and circuit descriptions are geared towards genuine design applications rather than the oversimiplifications and skeleton circuits of many college texts. During his career, the late Joe Carr was one of the world's leading writers on electronics and radio, and an authority on the design and use of RF systems. Whether you are looking for a complete self-study course in RF technology, or a c

Microwave & wireless communications technology by Joseph J Carr( )

21 editions published between 1996 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,445 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fundamentals of microwave and wireless communications technology are critical to the telecommunications and data acquisitions fields. Because many of the new developments involve commonly available equipment such as cellular telephones and satellite dishes, technicians as well as engineers must learn the basics of the technology. Microwave & Wireless Communications Technology offers a practical, device-based approach to the study of microwave and wireless communications. Student objectives, numerous questions and problems, and end-of-chapter summaries reinforce the theory in each chapter. Answers to odd-numbered questions are provided in the back of the book. Math is kept to the lowest practical level, and the last section of each chapter is a collection of the key equations laid out for the student. A Windows diskette with supplementary instructor material is available on request with adoption. Fundamentals of microwave & wireless communications. Written for Electronics Engineering Technician courses
The technician's radio receiver handbook : wireless and telecommunication technology by Joseph J Carr( )

13 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 1,397 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Technician's Radio Receiver Handbook is an invaluable tool for anyone involved in the technologies of wireless, cellular telephone, telecommunications, avionics, and other forms of electronic communication using radio waves. The market demand for and use of wireless and telecommunication technology has increased dramatically over the past decade, leaving many technicians and other communications professionals with the need for accurate information on how the newest equipment works and how to fix any problems that arise. Joe Carr, a notable author in the amateur radio and communications markets, explains both the new and old technologies, the science behind the scenes, as well as troubleshooting techniques not found in any other book. The book will also have a companion website including helpful calculation software, customizable spreadsheets, and much more. Written for technicians and hands-on practitioners in clear, easy-to-read text with many detailed illustrations Contains information on cutting-edge receiver equipment as well as the most popular types used today in a variety of markets.

The technician's EMI handbook : clues and solutions by Joseph J Carr( )

14 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 1,276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A hands-on guide to finding the sources of electromagnetic interference and then fixing the problems. Includes basic theory of EMI as well as detailed explanations of why this problem is becoming more serious as the international scope of the communications and electronics industries grow. This book is not a textbook, but rather a handbook that will become a constant source of reference for anyone who runs into trouble with EMI. Includes chapters on grounding, circuit shielding and filtering, preventing EMI in circuit design, as well as EMI sources such as power lines, transmitters, television, consumer electronics, telephones, automobiles, and the ever-frustrating mystery EMI. There are very few other books available even though EMI is constantly discussed and cursed. Most of the books on the market are about how to prevent EMI in circuit design or approaches to understanding the theory behind EMI. Though this information is important, especially to an engineering audience, these books hold no value at all to the technicians and hands-on practitioners in the fields of communications and servicing. These savvy professionals know that the book they are looking for and need is just not on the market. To get the information they need, this group is forced to read every magazine article they can find on the subject and rely on the advice of other professionals whether through technician groups or newsgroups. This book fills a void in the telecommunications and electronics industries by providing practical troubleshooting information. Addresses the technician's needs and interests Written by an eminent authority in the field Covers correction and prevention of problems with EMI

Antenna toolkit by Joseph J Carr( )

32 editions published between 1997 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 473 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Joe Carr has provided radio amateurs and short-wave listeners with the definitive design guide for sending and receiving radio signals with Antenna Toolkit 2nd edition. Together with the powerful suite of CD software, the reader will have a complete solution for constructing or using an antenna - bar the actual hardware! The software provides a simple Windows-based aid to carrying out the design calculations at the heart of successful antenna design. All the user needs to do is select the antenna type and set the frequency - a much more fun and less error prone method than using a conventional calculator to solve formulae. The new edition has been revised to include further cases of propagation, additional antennas and also two new chapters - Small Loop Antennas (a topic of considerable interest, which has been the subject of much recent debate in the amateur radio press); and Yagi Beam Antennas (widely used at HF and VHF). The CD software has also been updated. Joe Carr's expertise in the area of antenna design is legendary. Antenna designers, whether hobbyist or technician, can be assured they need look no further than Antenna Toolkit for the complete guide to understanding the practicalities of using and designing antennas today. A complete solution for antenna design in one package. Includes free CD-ROM with state of the art software for all design calculations. The definitive guide to antenna design for radio amateurs and short-wave listeners
