Reorganized to flow logically from broad physical principles to specific antenna design and construction techniques, the book begins by covering the fundamentals. Then the half-wave dipole is discussed both as an excellent antenna in its own right and as a conceptual tool for predicting the performance of other designs. Transmission line impedance matching techniques—and a companion Smith chart tutorial—lead into "must have" accessories for tuning, monitoring, and troubleshooting antenna system performance. Other tools, such as antenna modeling software and network analyzer add-ons for PCs and Macs, are addressed, and concluding chapters offer fresh insights into support structures and installation techniques.
Antenna topics covered include:
Dipoles and inverted-Vs
Quads, delta, and NVIS loops
Wire arrays (bobtail curtain, half-square, rhombic)
Verticals and shunt-fed towers
Rotatable Yagi beams
MF/HF receiving antennas (flag, pennant, K9AY, Beverage)
Mobile and portable antennas
...and many more!
