This magic name covers one of the war's
most exciting developments a new development with a great future.
The Navy needs men for Radar training.
Needs them right away -men who are keen, intelligent, quick to learn. And
that's fortunate for you, if you can qualify. Because there are no limits
to the postwar horizon of this amazing new science. Men trained by the
Navy as Radio Technicians will be in on the ground floor of a great new
field. They will have a thorough groundwork in principles that will still
be unknown to most commercial engineers.
A technical background is not necessary
to qualify, but a knowledge of high school mathematics and physics is
essential. Experience with amateur radio is also helpful. If you pass the
Eddy Aptitude Test, you start it, as Seaman First Class and are sent to a
Naval Training Center for Indoctrination, followed by nine months of
specialized training and a Petty Officer rating. You not only get this
$5,000 training program without a cent of cost, but you earn good pay and
promotion while you learn.
Most applicants take the Eddy Test
without any special preparation. However, for brush-up reading the
following list may prove helpful:
"'Wartime Refresher in Fundamental
Mathematics" published by Prentice-Hall.
Any high school physics or
"Invitation to Experiment" by Ira Freeman. (Important parts to
study -Theory of Heat, Light, Sound and Magnetism).
"Radio Material Guide" by
Tuttle or "Elements of Radio" by Marcus and
"Mechanical Practice"- NavPers 14004-
obtainable for 15c from the Government Printing Office, Washington 25,
