Book Description

Within twenty-four hours a nightmare will be unleashed that could cause the death of untold millions and devastate a great nation. It's a plot being carried out by the unlikeliest of allies. A powerful mole within the deepest reaches of U.S. Intelligence has secretly conscripted the very criminals he's been charged with investigating -- former IRA terrorists, Latino and Asian gang members, Middle Eastern assassins and others -- creating one of the most insidious terrorist networks law enforcement has yet to take down.

One man stands between the destroyers and the death tide: Jack Bauer, lone wolf operative for America's brand-new elite Counter Terrorist Unit. But he's three thousand miles from the CTU command center without backup in a strange city, New York. He's been artfully set up and is being hunted by...

From Publishers Weekly
For Kip Dawson, an unhappily married man with a son who blames him for his first wife's death, winning a trip into orbit is a dream come true. But when a meteorite slices through the ship, killing the pilot and severing all lines of communication, the dream quickly becomes a nightmare. Nance is well-known for his aviation thrillers, and with Orbit he successfully ventures into the near future with this tale of privately funded space flight gone awry. Nance is no newcomer to narration and it shows. He reads with an assured, confident voice and moves the story along with the pacing of an expert raconteur. His vocal modulations to distinguish between characters are subtle but effective. Most of his accents sound true. The use of a walkie-talkie like voice filter to indicate when characters are speaking over the...

Trans-Sister Radio
Chris Bohjalian
0375705171
August 2001
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
This sympathetic novel about the effect of a sex change on a romantic relationship, a family, and a community could almost be sold as a textbook--a kind of transgender Guide to the Perplexed. With its calming tone and scrupulous sensitivity to the feelings of all involved, it sometimes reads like a textbook, too. But while nobody is likely to launch a protest campaign over the cautious revelations of Trans-sister Radio, that's precisely the subject of Chris Bohjalian's seventh novel, in which a male college professor in a small Vermont town transforms himself into a woman. Even Dana Stevens's initial step in this direction--donning women's clothing--elicits a powerful reaction from the community.

And what about Dana's new girlfriend Allie Banks, a beloved local schoolteacher who fell in love with him before learning of...



Wireless Access Networks: Fixed Wireless Access and WLL Networks -- Design and Operation

Review
"This reference for students and professionals covers the design, operation, and maintenance of fixed wireless access and wireless local loop networks." (SciTech Book News Vol. 25, No. 2 June 2001)

"Mobile wireless systems have become the ubiquitous means of mass telecommunications over the past 15 years. The early ‘first generation, analogue systems were optimised for voice communications only but the proliferation of differing standards, particularly within Europe led to the development of a common digital based approach. The resulting ‘second generation system, GSM, now dominates the world mobile market; however this system, too, was designed and optimised primarily for voice services, albeit with the option for low speed data over the voice channel. Over recent years, the growth in demand for access...

From Publishers Weekly
Time travel and its fascinating paradoxes get surprisingly slack treatment in the second episode (after Gunpowder Empire) of Turtledove’s Crosstime Traffic series. Crosstimer Lawrence Gomes, a 21st-century entrepreneur who travels to alternate time lines to trade for goods and services, and his teenage son, Paul, sidestep to a world where Germany won WWI and still dominates the globe. They set up a shop called Curious Notions in San Francisco to sell electronic equipment, but their state-of-the-art wares quickly arouse the suspicions of both the occupying German constabulary and crime lords of the local Chinese triads. Plucky Paul complicates matters when he befriends Lucy Woo, a working girl whose family is inadvertently swept up in their cat-and-mouse game with the authorities. Turtledove does his usual...


World War II On The Air: Edward R. Murrow And The Broadcasts That Riveted A Nation
Mark Bernstein, et al
1402202474
May 30, 2005
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
With all the "embedded" hoopla, this informative and absorbing study of Edward R. Murrow and his fellow broadcasters at CBS gets back to sources. Bernstein (Grand Eccentrics) and Lubertozzi (The Complete War of the Worlds) give them the lion's share of the credit for inventing broadcast journalism during WWII, and they also document a formidable track record. Murrow himself was first on the scene, in prewar England and later the blitz. He appointed men like William Shirer, in Berlin, and Eric Sevareid, in France, to expand coverage, so that CBS was well positioned when the other radio networks ended European coverage in fear of violating the neutrality act. Sevareid had to get both himself and his wife and newborn twins out of a defeated France, while Shirer was replaced by Howard K. Smith, who barely got over...

Book Review
Network correspondent Cassie Sheridan, a rising star at KEY's Washington bureau, is exiled to the Miami office after her ambitions overpower her common sense and she identifies a victim of the Clown Rapist as the daughter of the head of the FBI. Not only is her career on the skids, but her private life's also a mess, and meanwhile, there's nothing more newsworthy happening than a hurricane warning on Florida's west coast. Then an 11-year-old boy with a metal detector discovers the remains of a dead porn star on a Siesta Key beach. She's wearing a ruby ring that's too tempting a treasure to turn over to the police, but what young Vincent Bayler doesn't know is that it's also an item that at least one upstanding local citizen would do anything to keep from being traced back to him--including kidnapping Vincent's...

Book Description
This book explains how the 1x Evolution (1XEV) data only (EVDO) system modifies (optimizes) the 1.25 MHz IS-95 radio channel structure to provide high-speed data services (up to 2.4 Mbps) to wireless customers. The EVDO system allows cellular service providers carriers to use one of more IS-95 CDMA radio channels (with changes) to provide broadband high-speed data services to their customers. The EVDO is an "always-on" system that allows users to browse the Internet without complicated dialup connections. You will learn that the key types of EVDO devices include external radio modems, wireless PCMCIA cards, embedded radio modules, and mobile telephones. External radio modems allow the customer to simply plug in their EVDO device to their USB or Ethernet data port to their desktop or laptop computer. EVDO PCMCIA cards can be...

Review
"the book is a good one that I recommend. It is heavy on the math, but none of it is overly exotic and all of it is easily dealt with. Even though I already have a dozen antenna books in my personal library, I like this one as it adds another dimension. The author has obviously had the experience to create this unique book." - Electronic Design, April 2006

Book Description
As wireless devices and systems get both smaller and more ubiquitous, the demand for effective but small antennas is rapidly increasing. This book will describe the theory behind effective small antenna design and give design techniques and examples for small antennas for different operating frequencies. Design techniques are given for the entire radio spectrum, from a very hundred kilohertz to the gigahertz...

ABCs of Wireless Radio: A Plain Treatise on Hertzian Wave Signalling, Embracing Theory, Methods of Operation and how to Build Various Pieces of the Apparatus Employed
Edward Trevert
1590160045
January 2003
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Who invented radio? Many believe that Marconi invented radio, which is true, in a sense. He invented radio using techniques that Tesla had first published in 1894, but had made public as early as 1891. Marconi was merely the first to demonstrate its practicality in long distance communication, and thus its commerciality. It wasn’t until after Tesla’s death in 1942 that courts ruled against the Marconi claim of the invention of radio. But even today, few people have heard of Tesla, fewer still know of his work and the tremendous impact it has had on our everyday life. Fortunately, this little book, written in clear and concise language, makes no attempt to explain wireless telegraphy as the technical work it inherently is. It does describe wireless theory, the apparatus employed, and the methods of operation...

Wings of Morning: The Story of the Last American Bomber Shot Down over Germany in World War II
Thomas Childers
0201407221
April 1996
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Childers, a history professor at the University of Pennsylvania, recounts the haunting story of one 12-man U.S. bomber crew during WWII. On a bombing run over Regensburg, on the eve of the German surrender, their B-24 Liberator was downed so swiftly by flak that only two crewmen could parachute to safety. One of those who perished was the author's uncle, Howard Goodner. This account is the product of his family's curiosity about Sgt. Goodner's tour of duty. Childers's detective work and reconstruction is impressive, covering training in the States, life on and off the base in England and the bombing missions over enemy territory. The narrative has extra depth and dimension from the focus on worried families of the airmen and the different ways each coped with the loss of its son. The book reads like a novel. One...
