Howdy, TowerTalkians --
FYI. I know there are some clever technical folks out there.

antenneX since it was founded 20 years ago.
The "X" in antenneX stands for eXperimentation, and we have seen
plenty of that over the years. From "A" to "Z" antennas, our monthly
magazine pages have presented new directions, new ideas, and even
new concepts in antenna work. But, not everything we publish about
has been new. Nor need it be. Many articles have shown us ways to
adapt materials designed for other applications to our antenna work.
Some have shown us easier ways to achieve standard goals. From
simpler construction methods to simpler but accurate ways to
calculate antenna dimensions, antenneX has produced a mighty
collection of articles useful at the everyday level of antenna
planning and construction.
We like to present a wide mix of articles each month from the
theoretical to the real "meat 'n potatoes" of how-to experiences
that many of you deal with on a daily basis. Our broad spectrum of
readers enjoys taking the trip with those who have solved problems
in a difficult environment, or have found new ways to bend the wires
or build components.
Another area of great interest is the review of some of those "new"
concepts presented earlier, how tested and the results achieved with
real measurements. This applies to some of those exotic concepts
that have been around for years too, as well as some of the more
One of the fascinating aspects of antenneX is that every issue is
written by its readers--or at least some of its readers. As we look
ahead, we want to invite more of the readership to submit articles.
For some, the process of writing is neither automatic nor easy, and
the monetary reward may not be great. However, nothing satisfies so
much as seeing your own work in print and having it discussed by
other readers in more than 200 countries. By publishing your work,
you have the opportunity of finding new avenues to expand your own
efforts by pondering the reaction to that initial work.
