Being of the same age (sort of) I enjoyed the book very much. In a similar way I had very little formal training but as John pointed out what they were teaching at Uni and Tech was way behind the cutting edge stuff we were handling and of little use.
We just made Pcb's, learned to program, cut metal,worked out how stuff was supposed to be done, won jobs by bravado, made it, spray painted to make it look pretty, installed it and got on with it.
I recommend a read for every one.
Fred.

It's working for me. I've backed the file up, just in case their website is having difficulties.

Interesting read, pity about the mistakes here and there though.

Articles and Tutorials

These tutorials and articles contain a lot of worthwhile information relating to specific aspects of vintage radio and television. I recommend a read of these though some of them are quite large. You might need a cuppa tea and a few hours to get through them all in one hit. NOTE: Some of these articles are written by members of Vintage Radio and Television and where this is the case credit has been given.

Glossary

Vintage Radio and Television's glossary contains the definitions for dozens of words and phrases.
