Reviews & Endorsements:
"This handy pocket guide contains a lot of useful information. It outlines in very concise form the procedures necessary for tracking down most radio frequency interference problems. For anyone wanting to track down an RFI problem, without having to learn all the basic theory involved, this pocket guide is a valuable resource. For those interested in learning more details about RFI problems, the pocket guide in combination with a more in-depth text, such as the aforementioned “ARRL RFI Book” would make a good combination."
- Henry W. Ott , Henry Ott Consultants
“The RFI Pocket Guide is actually more than the title suggests….As the inside title page points up, this guide deals with the broad topics of RFI “characterization”, location techniques, tools, and remediation methods. Key chapters cover identifying, locating, and resolving RFI. Key equations and data supplement these. There’s also a handy glossary of RFI terms and acronyms as well as a list of references. All of this in fewer than 90 pages!”

- Rick Lindquist, QST (ARRL)
