The ARRL Antenna Book for Radio Communications has everything you need to design your own complete antenna system. Since 1939, it has maintained its place at the forefront of Amateur Radio technology a single resource covering antenna theory, design and construction, and practical treatments and projects. In this edition, The ARRL Antenna Book describes hundreds of antenna designs: wire, vertical, portable and mobile, and new high-performance VHF/UHF Yagi designs.

Radio amateurs continue to make contributions to the state of the art in antenna design and construction. The available tools have grown in sophistication by leaps and bounds over the past years. Antenna modeling with the low-cost or free programs available to amateurs has completely changed antenna design and development.
