 I didn't mean to accuse you or Adi or anyone of intending to violate
copyright, and I apologize for giving that impression. The Wyglinski
et al. and Rondeau/Bostian books have apparently been uploaded as pdfs
to downarchive.com, and that does strike me as a flagrant violation of
copyright, and since I work with GNU Radio, those authors are
colleagues even if they've never heard of me. downarchive.com is
hosted in Viet Nam and may be beyond the realistic reach of copyright
enforcement, but that's just not the right way to get those books.

 As for Cory Clark's book, I would like to read it as much as you
would. When it was pre-announced on this list I went to Amazon and
added it to my wishlist, and I watched it go from "not yet released"
to "currently unavailable" to "out of print" with some disappointment.
I've done of the same searching as you have, and I'm pretty sure
you're not going to find the book anywhere on the Web. Contacting the
author is probably the best way forward.
