Getting the Most from Your Multimeter

In this book, different types of multimeters are shown and explained, from the older types of analog moving coil meters like the Simpson 260 to the latest types of multifunction meters like the Fluke 117. Examples have been given and a number of troubleshooting scenarios have been covered from basic voltage measurements with batteries, to more complex troubleshooting problems which require a number of steps. Safety issues have been addressed explaining the different classes of meters and what type of voltages that they are designed to measure and how failure to be constantly vigilant with electricity can result in fatal accidents to persons or irreparable damage to equipment. Explanations are given as to why moving coil meters still have their place (such as in the observation of slowly changing voltages) and as to why every voltage and current measurement affect the circuit being checked.

Getting Started in Radio Astronomy

Radio astronomy is a mystery to the majority of amateur astronomers, yet it is the best subject to turn to when desirous of an expanded knowledge of the sky. This guide intends to instruct complete newcomers to radio astronomy, and provides help for the first steps on the road towards the study of this fascinating subject. In addition to a history of the science behind the pursuit, directions are included for four easy-to-build projects, based around long-term NASA and Stanford Solar Center projects. The first three projects constitute self-contained units available as kits, so there is no need to hunt around for parts. The fourth – more advanced – project encourages readers to do their own research and track down items. Getting Started in Radio Astronomy provides an overall introduction to listening in on the radio spectrum. With details of equipment that really works, a list of suppliers, lists of online help forums, and written by someone who has actually built and operated the tools described, this book contains everything the newcomer to radio astronomy needs to get going.
