Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Not a textbook, but an introduction for practicing electronic engineers who have moved or want to move into radio-frequency design, and for other engineers, technicians, amateur radio enthusiasts, and electronics hobbyists with an interest in applying electronics to radio-frequency communications. The primary revisions from the 1993 edition are splitting the treatment of propagation and antennas into separate chapters and including more information on each, and adding a chapter on measurements and compatibility regulations.
