Anyone else take closer look ?
I down loaded the ebook , and watched the 1st video .
In the vain of trying to learn more about RF , I have my ham ticket and is the main reason for looking at , or my second - I seem to chase hobbies for a secondary reason - to learn & put in practice new skills .
In this case electronics .
Many others in the past , most recent benchrest shooting , I call it the most accurate type of shooting , example 5 shoots in 7 min. at 100 yrds , some of my better groups have been .032 of an inch , in practice and .082 in competition .
I wanted to know how to do it , not just understand , but be able to do myself , did that for about 10 yrs. and partnered with a fellow shooter in his retied custom at home machining business , because that kind of accuracy can not be achieve with custom building with extreme tolerances .
Well the same thing with ham radio , communicate around the world with very low power - how to do that , got my ham lic. and started playing with a new bunch of subjects electronics / RF .
Do not have the time or money to go to school to become a electrical engineer , would like to .
So back to the topic , this link .
The 1st video was ok , would have liked to see examples during the overview of software , then I see that with most of the rest of the videos , there is a label saying no audio , that always puts me off , watching a video takes time and no audio leaves that time with less efficient / or lack of info ?
Then not sure yet , but it may be a sales method , thats ok because of the effort put into the book & video .
Looking for other views ?

Well , about 1/3rd of the way through it , and learning and reenforcing some of what I have learned - I need lots of repetition to pickup new things ;)
Problem is my math sucks .
So this looks good ,  :-+
