The ARRL Antenna Designer's Notebook


An Exploration of the Art of Antenna Design

The ARRL Antenna Designer’s Notebook is certain to open a window into the mind of the antenna designer as the design is imagined, perfected, and finally constructed. This book provides a thorough description of new components of antennas–such as the FZ element and the C-pole–and practical antennas made from them. Explore the details of an improved tunable HF loop, theoretical analyses of linear loading and ground losses, and practical designs for beams and omnidirectional antennas.

Understanding Your Antenna Analyzer


Fine Tune Antenna Performance!


Antenna analyzers are arguably one of the most important pieces of equipment in an Amateur Radio station. Designed to measure impedance or standing wave ratio (SWR), the properly used antenna analyzer determines the details of an antenna’s tuning characteristics and helps maximize its performance. Even the simplest antennas can benefit from using one, and your success on the air may depend on it, but only if you understand and avoid the common pitfalls.

The ARRL Guide to Antenna Tuners


Antenna tuners are devices often misunderstood in the Amateur Radio world. While not every station requires an antenna tuner to transmit radio signals, often an incompatibility between the transmitter and the antenna system results in poor performance. An antenna tuner between them is often the way to obtain efficient operation.
