An Exploration of the Art of Antenna Design
By Brian Cake, KF2YN
Radio amateurs continue to make true advances in antenna experimentation and ARRL Antenna Designer's Notebook looks at that process. From the idea through to a workable design this book presents the use of computers, antenna modelling software in arriving at an antenna solution.
ARRL Antenna Designer's Notebook opens up the world of the antenna designer as the design is imagined, perfected, and finally constructed. This book provides a description of new components of antennas, such as the FZ element and the C-pole and provides designs of practical antennas made from them. The book also explores the details of an improved tunable HF loop, theoretical analyses of linear loading and ground losses, and practical designs for beams and omnidirectional antennas. Readers will find much besides including long Yagi antennas, box kite Yagis, Vertical Antennas, C Pole Antennas, Twin-C Antennas, Big Loops, Ground Plane Antennas and much more
Free Bonus CD
Included in the book is a CD with EZNEC models for all the antennas in the book plus a bonus presentation on box kite Yagi antennas.
