Additional Information

You Can Build It!

The ARRL Antenna Book for Radio Communications has everything you need to design your own complete antenna system. Since 1939, it has maintained its place at the forefront of Amateur Radio technology a single resource covering antenna theory, design and construction, and practical treatments and projects. In this edition, The ARRL Antenna Book describes hundreds of antenna designs: wire, vertical, portable and mobile, and new high-performance VHF/UHF Yagi designs.

Radio amateurs continue to make contributions to the state of the art in antenna design and construction. The available tools have grown in sophistication by leaps and bounds over the past years. Antenna modeling with the low-cost or free programs available to amateurs has completely changed antenna design and development. A large set of antenna models designed for use with EZNEC 6.0 demo software is included.

Updated to reflect the latest advances and technologies, this 23rd edition is full of antenna designs pioneered by dozens of radio amateurs:

New Projects: Multiband HF antennas from 160 through 10 meters, A simple omnidirectional satellite antenna system, More popular Moxon antenna projects on CD-ROM, Stealthy and portable antenna designs for home and away.

New Information: How short vertical antennas affect the performance of antenna systems, New section on grounding and bonding, both key to effective station design and protection, Updated Propagation chapter now includes a discussion of MF and LF propagation, Expanded content on CD-ROM, including references and classic articles on antennas.

CD-ROM Inside: Includes all of the fully searchable text and illustrations in the printed book, plus utility programs and supplemental content from expert contributors.

System Requirements: A fully searchable PDF version of this book is included for Windows® 7, Windows Vista®, or Windows® XP, as well as Macintosh® systems, using Adobe® Acrobat® Reader® software.

Great content, but really poor printing (as noted in the other review). Print goes right to the inside margins, which make it very difficult to read. You have to push down on the spin so you can see the print. Given how thick the book is, this will eventually wear down the spine over time.
Haven't read this extensively, but so far it's been great for getting a better understanding of how radio antennas are designed and function. I bought it to get a better understanding of antenna design for wireless microphone systems for event sound. This is a pretty universal book, with lots of great info that's pretty clearly written etc. Hopefully after I spend more time with this book I can update this review with more info...
I have no previous radio and very little electronic knowledge, just got interested this year. To me this book seems very technical and it applies directly to what I need to understand, plan and build a proper antenna. The information is well organized and I know that I will be using this book as a reference for many years.
