Book 2 above was the book that helped me the most in learning radio theory. It was written specifically to teach radio theory in a nonmathmatical manner, relying on illustrations, graphs, and discussion instead of mathmatical formulas to teach theory.
Many homes house a variety of types and ages of radios. This guide will cover how to fix small corded radios: clock radio, table radio, digital radio, kitchen radio, and others. It gives step-by-step instructions for how to reset a radio dial pointer, how to replace a radio external antenna, how to replace a radio internal antenna, and how to clean radio electronic components. You will also be referred to other Fix-It Guides for specific repairs. A radio receiver is an electronic device that receives audio signals through an antenna, then amplifies the resulting sound and delivers it to your ears through speakers.

Aileen jeremycool. A friend gave me a Marine VHF Radio Receiver which is working badly, and asked me if I can look into it and try to repair it I'm not going to charge him. The first time the radio is turned on, the reception works OK, but after a few minutes the reception dies, and turning it off and on again immediately won't fix the issue. I have to wait a few more minutes with the radio turned off to again start receiving OK. The squeltch is always at minimun, receiving noise.
Depending on the particular product you purchased, some or all of the information below may or may not apply. If your radio gets wet or submerged while plugged in or turned on, you may experience an electrical shock. This electrical shock is just as hazardous as any modern electrical device but not more so. These radios are typically 30 watts and operate on no more than V.

Kenwood Repairs. Manage my booking. The main reason I have Kenwood gear is that if I need work done the service center is just a few miles away. This after being advised to send the radio in by Kenwood's own tech support.

This is a short book 96 pages officially—really 92 but it's no-nonsense. The book assumes no prior knowledge of electronics, so a chunk of the book at the beginning is devoted to the very basics: what is voltage, current, resistance, Ohm's law, how a capacitor works, and so on. Obviously at 92 pages you're not going to get a thorough education, but it's enough to get you by. The idea is teach someone enough to fix this radio if it isn't too far gone without having to go through a full radio course. From that respect it's good; it's simply written and it's heavily illustrated. But its brevity means there's a lot of stuff left out: actual "repair" info is thin, and common fixes like what to do about a slipping dial cord or how to align the receiver aren't mentioned at all.
