Not all our work is sensitive, contentious or high-profile. For many years I have had the pleasure of being Technical Editor of the World Radio & TV Handbook which is the definitive guide to radio and television broadcasting. Part of the editorial task is to review radio receivers in depth, assess their performance and present the results in a way which is interesting to the specialist and intelligible to the layman.
Another part of the job is writing feature articles related to radio and TV broadcasting and reception; amongst other things this gives me an excuse to write about some iconic military and professional communications receivers. Extracts from some of our work are featured here by kind permission of the publisher of WRTH.
