Thanks to several alert Microwaves101 fans (Steve, Kerry, Matthew, Randall, Joe to name a few...) we have our own copy of the Navy's Electronic Warfare and Radar Systems Handbook. This is a public domain document originally released in 1997, free for everyone, and now it's conveniently located here at Microwaves101.com for the rest of time!

Here's the entire handbook all zipped up if you want it.
