    Has anyone read and could recommend a book about designing radio transmitters, detailed through all the steps of oscillation, modulation, amplification, transmission, decoding, analog and digital. Something that really gets goes through the details please. Thank you.

    Have you looked at the ARRL web site? They should have every resource imaginable.

    Have a look at this book:
    http://www.amazon.com/Basic-Communications-Electronics-Jack-Hudson/dp/0790611554

    Chapters:
    1 Basic Communications Systems
    2 Analog System Functions
    3 A Refresher (for those who didn't get the Basic Electronics book, covers Ohm's Law, Decibels, Passive Devices, Diode Characteristics, Active Devices and Coupling)
    4 Amplifiers and Oscillators
    5 Modulation
    6 Mixing and Heterodyning
    7 Transmitters
    8 Receiving, including Detection
    9 Transmission Links
    10 Analog IC's
    11 Digital Signal Processing

    I picked up a copy back when Radio Shack was still selling books. It's a pretty good book. You could do much worse ;)
