Anybody read ICOM 802 Starting from Scratch by Terry Sparks?

This book was recommended by Practical Sailor. It is the most expensive book on the 802.install and use. I am wondering if anyone knows what the $120.00 worth of Free Coupons is for?
If they are for items I need for the install that would defiantly make the purchase worthwhile.

Re: Anybody read ICOM 802 Starting from Scratch by Terry Sparks?

I think it is a well done book and I refer to it frequently. I got it as part of a course that was put on at a local yacht club. Terry was the presenter. I think I paid $120 for the course with the book included and I thought that was worthwhile even though I had a good idea of everything beforehand.
A single tidbit of information can save you the book cost and more.
I did not use the coupons - they are for purchasing the radio if I recall correctly. We had a local chandler do a one time special for the course participants.
