This new second edition of Small Antennas for Small Spaces is fully updated and remains a valuable resource for radio amateurs who living in apartments, houses with small gardens or anyone who is restricted in what antennas they can use.
ARRL's Small Antennas for Small Spaces contains design ideas and projects for VHF and HF antennas you can use inside your home. Whilst this book provides a US view of what constitutes a small antenna it is still a valuable resource filled with practical advice. For outdoors there are dipoles, inverted Ls, end-fed wires, loops, verticals and temporary antennas for HF. You will find compact omnidirectional and directional antennas for VHF that you can install anywhere. There are a number of new projects including a "privacy fence" stealth antenna, self-supporting inverted V dipole and the extended double Zepp dipole. This book even provides tips to get you started that include optimising your limited space station, feed lines, SWR, RF amplifiers, operating modes and RF safety.
If you think your antenna dreams mean you're effectively off the air - think again ARRL Small Antennas for Small Spaces provides ideas and projects that will get you on the air regardless of where you live!
