The ARRL Antenna Designer's Notebook (Details)
-- An Exploration of the Art of Antenna Design
By Brian Cake, KF2YN
A Rarely Presented View of Antenna Design-From Imagination to Aluminum
The ARRL Antenna Designer’s Notebook is certain to open a window into the mind of the antenna designer as the design is imagined, perfected, and finally constructed. This book provides a thorough description of new components of antennas–such as the FZ element and the C-pole–and practical antennas made from them. Explore the details of an improved tunable HF loop, theoretical analyses of linear loading and ground losses, and practical designs for beams and omnidirectional antennas.
CD-ROM included with EZNEC models for all the antennas in the book plus a bonus presentation on Boxkite Yagi antennas.
