Introduction

Greetings, comrade.

The Blue Book is WKCR's basic technical manual for programmers and interns. It contains instructions for basic station operations and compliance with FCC regulations. Sections include:

There is more equipment at WKCR than what is covered in this book. In addition, many topics in this book assume a passing familiarity with the subject material. This manual is not a comprehensive guide to all possible problems. This manual is intended to be combined with the DOE's training sessions to develop the basic techniques necessary to become a programmer. If you want to know how to do something not included in this book, ask someone.
