This book provides an introduction to radio frequency (RF) engineering, using a straightforward and easily understood approach combined with numerous worked examples, illustrations and homework problems. The author has focused on minimising the mathematics needed to grasp the subject while providing a solid theoretical foundation for the student. Emphasis is also placed on the practical aspects of radio engineering. The book provides a broad coverage of RF systems, circuit design, antennas, propagation and digital techniques. Written for upper-level undergraduate courses, it will also provide an excellent introduction to the subject for graduate students, researchers and practising engineers.
