Wireless for the Warrior Volume 4 (‘Clandestine Radio’) is different in approach to the previous books in this series. Although it still contains a mix of technical data, photographs, line drawings and circuit diagrams, no extensive descriptions are provided, principally to limit the number of pages but also for reasons of non availability of detailed information of the majority of sets. I am very pleased to announce that this Volume is a combined effort of Rudolf Staritz, myself and a number of other authors, notably Jan Bury, Erling Langemyr, Tor Marthinsen, Pete McCollum and Antero Tanninen, experts in their own field and living in various parts of the world.

The time period imposed on the selection of sets to be included in this volume stretches from about 1938 up to the early 1990s, approximately to the fall of the Berlin wall. No attempts were taken to include satellite equipment and radios which might be still in current use.
