Practical Antenna Handbook 5/e

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.

Question by rtam_mvrcs: How Come My graphics card is connected to my ethernet cable outlet?
so, i hav 2 computers, i tore open the shell to look inside, and i saw that my graphics card was not connected to my monitor outlet. i wanted to switch THE CARDS, BUT i thought how would it make a difference if switch the cards if they only have a wireless antennae and an ethernet cable outlet? OR MAYBE MY COMPUTERS ARE TOO OUTDATED? SOMEONE PLZ HELP.

Answer by zephanblaxberg
I think you may have yourself confused there my friend. The graphics card should be plugged into the motherboard. And a cable should be running from the back of your graphics card (the part that runs out the back side of the computer) to your monitor. A graphics card is meant to do that so you see a picture on the screen. I’m not quite sure what cards you plan on switching but, why would you want to switch them? If your computer works, leave it how it is.

    This is a book that I am happy to call a member of my collection of antenna books. The book first of all is *readable* not being either a compendium of example antennas others have created that may or may not work, nor is it a book full of old antenna information the foundation for which might date back 80 years and be suspect. It is an up to date treatment of different types of antennas, some theory justifying them, and is exquisitely well-illustrated. Included as well are sections on modern antenna modeling as well as modern means of troubleshooting antenna systems. The book’s author is a renowned expert in amateur radio operating and antenna systems. He has always been willing to help others achieve a better understanding of their stations and operation. In short the author’s background is perfect to write a Practical Antenna Handbook – someone who knows the theory, practices it avidly and uses his antenna system in frequent operation. I recommend this book to anyone with an interest in antennas, regardless of prior background.

    Superb Antenna Book!, March 21, 2012
    By 

    This is BY FAR the best antenna book I’ve come across. I’m a Director of a university library and an Extra Class licensed amateur radio operator and, unfortunately, came across this book after purchasing a number of ARRL antenna books, including the 21st edition of the “The Antenna Handbook.” I’m a member of the ARRL, like QST, and like the service they perform but… most of their books tend to be previous QST articles “stitched” together. Or at least they read that way. Ironically, they sometimes leave out the really practical information. Anyway, this book has it all — theory AND really practical stuff. So it’s all here. Great illustrations. The “Mechanical Construction and Installation Techniques” section is not to be beat. I HIGHLY recommend this book. I personally selected it for our university (an engineering school) library. Now I’m going to buy my own personal copy. 73, Bob – W2TAC

    I bought this book to find out just one thing…what are the characterstics of a delta loop antenna…I didn’t know if the book would mention this antenna or not…and behold, the book gave me 3 pages of clear concise easily understood plain language covering the delta loop, and included simple diagrams and a few simple arithmetic formulas to cover size and ended with a personal assessment of the antenna and whether a normal average man would find it worthwhile to invest a little time to make one…………the remainder of the book repeated this same formulaic approach over and over with a multitude of antennas and frequencies, all geared to the normal average Joe and Jane…..BTW the delta loop is highly recommended and I’m building one now
