I recently found a copy of Laporte's book in the give-away pile of books
outside a professor's door at the Naval Postgraduate School.
Hmmmm....Should check those more often..... What a
classic....a real gold mine...Can copy exerpts for you if you need to
build a rhombic or some such.....
It's hard to imagine that those radio
engineers of that era actually computed and plotted those antenna patterns
by hand, with trig tables, log tables, etc......Hurray for folks like
Beasley, and Lewallen......
