Choice Review

Tunnell's compendium was designed for the amateur short wave radio enthusiast who may be eavesdropping on police, military, or government transmissions. In addition to definitions of codes (Everyone knows what 10-4 means, but what about 10-25?) a great deal of slang is also included as well as terms relating to international affairs and terrorism. It is an eclectic mixture but very rich in content. A great deal of material that previously had been classified by the US government is available here, especially covernames and certain codewords. Although indexing is inadequate and there are few cross-references, the wealth of information is extraordinary; and given the quantity of data, errors are few. The usefulness of this volume to librarians and the general public is such that it will be consulted by many in addition to the short wave operators who make up Tunnell's intended audience. Recommended for all general reference collections. P. Heller Norwich University
