This book is a collection of over 50 of the very best articles published on antennas from around the world. The book is wide ranging and offers solutions to many problems experienced by the antenna enthusiast. The articles include antenna designs for most amateur bands. Stealthy and invisible antennas are covered alongside many interesting traditional designs. The book also benefits from two articles specially commissioned for inclusion here. The first, by Professor Mike Underhill, G3LHZ, of the University of Surrey at Guildford, UK, entitled ‘The Truth About Loops’, gives an exhaustive account of the performance of the small loop. The second article is titled, 'A Brief Overview of the Performance of Wire Aerials in their Operating Environments’, from Jack Belrose, VE2CV.
Great care has been taken to ensure that there are antennas to cover the range from 136 kHz to 1.3 GHz, receiving and transmitting, fixed and mobile. Everyone interested in antenna design and construction will find something in this book.
