Ward Silver has been a ham since 1972 which led him to a 20-year career as an electrical engineer, designing microprocessor-based products and medical devices. In 2000, he began a second career as a teacher and writer.
Ward is Lead Editor of the two primary amateur radio technical references, both published by the American Radio Relay League -- the ARRL Handbook and the ARRL Antenna Book. He is the author of all three ARRL licensing study guides and has written three titles in the popular "for Dummies" series: Ham Radio, Two-Way Radios and Scanners, and Circuitbuilding Do-It-Yourself.
Outside of ham radio, Ward plays the mandolin, dabbles in digital photography, and enjoys biking, camping, and canoeing.
