I love reading old ARRL (American Radio and Relay League) publications. ARRL is an amateur radio advocacy group started in 1914 and based in Hartford Connecticut. Through the years they have also published many books on different amateur radio subjects. The current vintage ARRL publication I am reading is "How to become a radio amateur" from 1961. This was and still is a great publication. It teaches a newly minted Amateur Radio enthusiast practical skills and also includes plans on how to build your very own Regenerative Short Wave Receiver, Continuous Wave Transmitter, and a Power Supply to power both Receiver and Transmitter. You typically can find such vintage ARRL publications at flea markets, Hamfests, or in Amazon used books!
