hws1-t.jpg (1129 bytes)his 30-chapter eBOOK of more than 215 pages is a publication by antenneX with a collection of papers written by some of the best and most active experts in the design, development and construction of compact antennas based on a technology, the name of which was coined at antenneX — the capacitor antenna. Without a doubt, this is one of the most unique books of its kind about a subject that concerns more radio operators as each day goes by—a shrinking operating environment!

Almost without exception, the antennas presented in this book are new and unique all designed to produce the most HF radiation from the smallest device in the least amount of space. The devices described in this book are taken from many years of efforts by numerous experienced engineers, scientists and experimenters from various parts of the Globe.

As more of us find ourselves wanting to operate HF radio, but are or will be living in confined environments such as apartments, condominiums and other restricted communities, we need a suitable antenna that can be installed, mounted and operated from within those confines. What could be better to have an antenna that can be mounted in small places like the attic similar to the one used for some 8 years or more by Dick Jones, K9ZNZ as displayed on the book cover shown here? Or, perhaps the closet or balcony? ...as long as its unobtrusive, doesn't bother anyone, doesn't detract from the surroundings or offend the rules of the community—and, of course works efficiently enough to do the job! And, with minimal skills, you could build one of your choice by following the illustrations in this very special book—well all of these things are possible by following the lead of the creative pioneers in this book, their experiments and their successful results!

The 216-page book is packed with formulas, diagrams, pictures, in support of the theory, design, construction and use of the various antennas presented. It not only discusses the design and construction of the devices, but includes numerous matching networks developed especially for the antennas to help maximize the performance on the bands ranging from 10 to 160 meters. Learn interesting techniques from the methods used by the designers to tune the antennas.

Take a look at the wide assortment of unique antenna contents contained in the 30-chapter book and listen to Gary Nixon, WA6HZT & Jay Lemmons, N6YIP in streaming audio as they describe their 160-meter project:
