25 years of Hart Reviews
Amateur radio equipment reviews have always been popular in the Radio Society of Great Britain's (RSGB) journal RadCom and it is not surprising to see why. RadCom's leading equipment reviewer for over 25 year has been Peter Hart, G3SJX. Peter's technical reviews are much prized in the radio amateur community as his systematic and technical reviews are derived from comprehensive measurements that allow the reader to derive meaningful comparisons of equipment.
25 years of Hart Reviews is a collection of every single review Peter Hart, G3SJX has published in RadCom from 1979-2004. This period has covered some of the most significant changes to radio technology and his reviews reflect this. Peter has covered the first amateur radio equipment to include microcontrollers which, in turn, made possible the single tuning knob digital frequency synthesiser and the ability to make stable oscillators at VHF. This made viable the up-conversion broadband superhet architecture which forms the basis of virtually all successive designs up until the present day. Nearly 100 equipment reviews are included in this book and cover every conceivable type of transceiver, including a variety of antennas and amplifiers as well. This book is not only a fascinating view of 25 years of amateur radio equipment but is a valuable guide to the new and second hand buyer of equipment.
