I need an education on radio communications. The different types (am, fm, uhf, vhf, single side band, ham radio, citizen band, etc.), and how atmospheric conditions affect each. What books do you recomend? Thanks

You can try the following: EHAM.COM, QRZ.COM, ARRL.ORG These should have more than enough information for you.

in addition to the above sites, to balance out the geek factor in ham radio, go to www.hamsexy.com for some comedy and, in reality, bettre knowledge of many aspects of radio such as public safety.

The ARRL Handbook would be a good place to start, I think.

If you don't want to buy it, you can probably get it at a library, and if they don't have it, you can get it by inter-library loan.

Pick up a copy of the ARRL's book "now you're talking" Basic material for getting a starting out amateur radio license....Most of the ino is very basic & will give you a really good overview...QR web site, ARRL.com, Eham.net....really good material....good luck.
