Hams just love antennas...and they love to read about them, and write about them! This is the fourth in the popular ARRL Antenna Compendium series. You'll find 38 articles inside, covering a wide range of topics. There are simple, practical antenna projects, and there are heavy-duty, theoretical treatments of complex arrays.

When the sunspots are low, head for the low-bands--seven articles are devoted to 80 and 160 meters, including some truly gargantuan arrays. Don't we hams love to dream about what rock-crushing low-band signals we'd have, if only we could get that new 200-foot tower? But what happens if we only have a 50-foot tower?

There are articles for mobile work too. And, a section on portable or temporary antennas that will get you thinking about Field Day in June, regardless of what time of year you read it.

The original edition of The ARRL Antenna Compendium Volume 4 included a 3.5-inch diskette with data files and software applications. Many of the articles contained within this book make reference to these files and programs. The software diskette is not included in this printing, because most of the programs will now longer function on modern computers. However, the original software is still available, free of charge, for downloading from the ARRLWeb at
