GKA History Book

My book about the history of GKA has now been published and is (apparently) available to order through Amazon and Waterstones. The RRP is 9.99 for 328 pages of history. Those who would like a signed/dedicated copy will be able to order the book through the GKA website, although my stock is not due to arrive for a few weeks yet. I will advise everyone when they have arrived and can be despatched.

I will have to add P&P to website orders but this will be kept to the absolute minimum.

For a short time yesterday the book was the #1 best-selling telecommunications book on Amazon....

GM Larry,

I think I'll go with a signed copy in due course. Can't miss out on an Amazon #1 with the author's moniker.

Postage and Packing rates for signed copies of the Portishead Radio/GKA history book have now been worked out.

In the UK the P&P will be 3.00 for 1 book, 4.50 for 2 books and 6.00 for 3 books. You can order through the link on the website:

https://portisheadradio.godaddysites.com/gka-book

P&P for Europe is 6.50, N and S America/Africa/Asia is 10 and Australia/NZ 11.00 for 1 book. Please contact me for prices for multiple copies.

The price of the book itself is 9.99 and copies are due to be received here by the end of next week. They will be sent out immediately after receipt.

Of course you will still be able to obtain the book through Amazon and other on-line retailers, athough these will not be signed.

Just an update on the book - as of this week, worldwide sales are just under 1,000, with 16 5-star reviews on Amazon. Has also been an Amazon 'Best-Seller' in the Telecommunications genre for a few weeks. Reviews in the UK radio press have also been encouraging. The book is still available from myself via the GKA website for UK customers as well as via Amazon and other on-line retailers worldwide.

Thank you for your kind comments and observations, much appreciated.
