Summary: "A fully revised and updated edition of the classic antenna referencePractical 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.Comprehensive coverage of antenna technologies Background & History; Radio Communications Fundamentals; Antenna Basics; Radio Wave Propagation; Transmission Lines & Impedance Matching High Frequency Building Block Antennas; Dipoles & Doublets; Large Wire Loop Antennas; Multiband & Tunable-Wire Antennas; Vertical Antennas; Directional High Frequency Antennas; Antenna Arrays & Array Gain; Wire Arrays; Vertical Arrays; Yagi (Beam) Antennas; Cubical Quad Antennas; High Frequency Antennas for Specialized Uses; Beverages, Small Loops, & Other Receiving Antennas; Hidden & Limited Space Antennas; Mobile & Marine Antennas; Emergency & Portable Antennas; Antennas for Shortwave Listeners (SWLs); Antennas for Other Frequencies; Antennas for 160 meters; VHF & UHF Antennas; Microwave Waveguides & Antennas; Radio Astronomy Antennas; VLF Antennas; Radio Direction Finding (RDF) Antennas; Test, Measurement, & Design Aids; Antenna Modeling; The Smith Chart; Instruments for Tuning, Adjusting, & Troubleshooting; Mechanical Construction & Installation Techniques; Supports for Wire Antennas; Towers for Beams, Quads, & Verticals; Ground; Systems for Safety & Performance; Zoning, Restrictive Covenants, & Your Neighbors; Useful Trigonometry & Geometry Relations; Suppliers of Antennas, Towers, Hardware; & Accessories; Internet Resources & Web Sites"--Summary: "Fully revised and updated, the fifth edition of this classic antenna resource includes new information on wireless devices, radio frequency interference (RFI), and the latest antenna modeling software"--
