Hello all, I am a RF Technicaian for a small passive RF filter company. I have done some board design mainly by trial and error, error, and error. Can anyone recommend a text book for pcb basics?

The basic er the better, to start with.

You can try the Filter Design book by Randell Rhea, it is an excllent practical book for filters and their implementation, and also includes a chapter on PCB layout of filters.

Good luck, :-D
