ABOUT THIS BOOK SERIES
s space for antennas continues to shrink in the present era of smaller urban and suburban yard, hams have begun to turn to 1-antenna solutions to their operating needs. However, the downside may be that one’s band or bands of operation is limited and prefer that one antenna work more and not prevent the use of other bands of opportunity. And, rather than a multiple of antennas to erect, perhaps the use of a multi-band antenna will do the trick. Such choice could provide the convenience of saving the expense of time, money and effort—plus, saving the cost of more money, time and effort to maintain those extra antennas!

This series of books is designed with the above limitation in mind, e.g., allow one to work several bands from the same antenna as a multi-band type of antenna. Such can be in the form of a wideband or broadband, as well as omni-directional coverage, depending on the specific needs and available environmental options.

Some may or may not know there are subtle differences between a wideband and a broadband type of antenna. This book series will help to explain those differences making it easier for one to more closely select a good choice as a solution to one’s specific needs depending on the yard space required and environment. Just look at these examples we have here to determine how familiar the design and uses appear versus your need of more for less. There are many to choose from in this special series with 850+ pages in Volumes 1 and 2 combined.
