Backyard Antennas


Radio amateurs and short-wave listeners all want to achieve the very best from their HF and VHF equipment. Receivers and transmitters are available to professional standards, but very few people have the real estate to erect the sort of antenna used by a commercial radio station.


Antenna guru Peter Dodd, G3LDO explains how, by using a variety of simple techniques, it is possible to achieve very high performance from a compact antenna. Also detailed is how to make an antenna efficient on several bands at once.

Easy Solution of Practical Transmission Line Problems


A Calculation Manual for Amateur Radio Operators


Transmission lines are one of the most important aspects of an Amateur Radio station. All operators use them in some form or another, and they all run the risk of performance degradation if not used correctly. The problem is the advanced level of mathematics knowledge required to understand transmission lines is complex.
