Short Desription

A fully revised and updated edition of the classic antenna reference

Practical Antenna Handbook, Fifth Edition thoroughly covers the wide array of advances in the field that have occurred in the 10 years since the previous edition was published. These topics, all discussed in the book, include:

  • High speed Internet access
  • Wireless devices and WiFi networks
  • The 160-meter band
  • New RFI sources to keep pace with microprocessors and digital electronics
  • Low-priced, high-performance antenna modeling software
  • Specialized directional antennas for weak-signal reception

Recommendations for specific dimensions, materials, and components minimize wasted procurement costs and assembly time. The book offers just enough antenna and propagation theory to grasp the basic concepts, preparing you for selecting and building the most effective antenna for the job.
