U.S. News & World Report
"If names like Hallicrafters, Collins and Eddystone make you pine for the glow of vacuum tubes and staticky voices from afar, this stylish compendium will keep you turning pages and sighing nostalgically."

North American Shortwave Association
"This book is a celebration of all the technology we shortwave folks hold dear. It is the ultimate resource for the shortwave radio lover. There were pages in this book that made my eyes damp."
