The ARRL Antenna Book for Radio Communications

Availability: Ready to download

Build one antenna and you'll quickly find yourself planning the next. The ARRL Antenna Book for Radio Communications is devoted entirely to that pioneering spirit. In this one book, you will find all of the information you need for complete antenna systems - from planning to design and construction.

The ARRL Antenna Book for Radio Communications is devoted entirely to that pioneering spirit. In this one book, you will find all of the information you need for complete antenna systems - from planning to design and construction. The Antenna Book describes antennas for nearly any frequency range and operating application, from the HF low bands through VHF, UHF and microwave; fixed station, portable, mobile, maritime, satellite and more! Every chapter of this 22nd edition has been updated or rewritten to some degree, including entirely new chapters on limited space antennas, portable and mobile antennas, receiving and direction-finding antennas, building towers, antenna system troubleshooting, and updated listings for antenna system materials and service suppliers. The chapters in this edition have been reorganized to progress from principles through practical applications. You can build it! Even the novice builder will appreciate the complete construction notes for dozens of antenna designs including wire and loop antennas, verticals, and Yagis. New designs in this edition include a C-pole ground-independent HF antenna, patch and Vivaldi antennas, "cheap" VHF and UHF Yagis, a 40 meter Moxon beam, a TV-to-ham log-periodic conversion, and improved half-element designs for Yagis. The antennas in this edition benefit directly from the latest computer modeling techniques.

    Recommended as a book to keep on the shelf for those with a strong electronics background who build antenna systems or wish to more fully understand how radio frequency waves are transmitted and received. Even at 993 pages, this book is not and cannot be the ultimate reference guide to antennas, transmission lines, and radio wave propagation. That is not to say that that book does not provide useful information. The editors have attempted to cover as much ground as possible in the book's twenty e Recommended as a book to keep on the shelf for those with a strong electronics background who build antenna systems or wish to more fully understand how radio frequency waves are transmitted and received. Even at 993 pages, this book is not and cannot be the ultimate reference guide to antennas, transmission lines, and radio wave propagation. That is not to say that that book does not provide useful information. The editors have attempted to cover as much ground as possible in the book's twenty eight chapters, making choices about how deep and detailed a particular topic will receive. There are many diagrams, graphs, and photographs that augment the book's text, which makes it an interesting and informative read, especially for those with a strong background in RF (radio frequency) and electrical engineering. Casual readers, those with a limited knowledge of electronics, will probably find the material challenging. The book comes with a CD containing a number of articles previously published in QST (the ARRL's magazine) as well as project details from the book. If you are unsure whether or not this book is for you, many libraries have it in their collections or you can contact your local amateur radio club, whose members will most likely have a copy or two for you to review.
