After over a decade absence, radio monitors once again have a single, exhaustive
publication to help them identify radio signals on the various radio bands.
This new CD-ROM ebook from Teak Publications, has been expanded from the
print first edition and covers various callsigns and other types of radio
transmission IDs used throughout the HF, VHF and UHF radio bands.
This giant 1,100 page plus callsign reference uses the Adobe Acrobat
platform. All text is fully searchable and can be printed by the user.
The ten chapters in this book cover various identification types including
internationally assigned callsigns (including ships), airline calls, ship and
coastal maritime mobile service identification (MMSI) numbers, ALE addresses,
selected aircraft selcals, selected ICAO24 aircraft codes, and introductory
material. The single largest chapter of this book has an extensive listing of
tactical call words and IDs used by civilian, military, and government agencies.
This is a self-loading, easy-to-use CD-ROM ebook, and it is a must have for the
active HF or scanner radio enthusiast.
