Overview

The most popular book on antennas ever written,Joseph J. Carr's Practical Antenna Handbook is a work for anyone with an interest in antennas,from the newest of novices to the most experienced engineer. This empowering book gives you projects,yes. And it gives you material that explains why what you did works. But most importantly,it prepares you to design and construct your own antennas "for the cases," Carr modestly notes,"that the author thoughtlessly failed to cover. " Written by one of the nation's most valued radio and electronics authors,this eagerly awaited new third edition includes instructions for constructing virtually any antenna you might want from radio astronomy to citizen's band.

The world's favorite antenna book. The most popular book on antennas ever written,widely known as "the antenna builder's bible," Joseph J. Carr's Practical Antenna Handbook,Third Edition is a work for anyone with an interest in antennas,from the newest of novices to the most experienced engineer. This empowering book gives you all kinds of projects,yes. And it gives you material that explains why what you did works. But most importantly,it prepares you to design and construct your own antennas "for the cases," Carr modestly suggests,"That the author thoughtlessly failed to cover. " This third edition blends,in Joseph J. Carr's words,"the theoretical concepts that the engineers and others need to design practical antennas,and the hard-learned practical lessons derived from actually building and using antennas—real antennas made of real metal—not merely theoretical constructs on a blackboard. " Add it to your working library,and pretty soon it'll assume a favoritespot inside your toolbox,beaten up,tattered,annotated with your persona notes. . . obviously used to the fullest extent.
