Practical Antennas - Vol 1 and 2 by Marcel H De Canck,  ON5AU

Volume 2 of this series has just been released. If you already  have 
Volume 1, you'll want to add this new Volume 2. If not, here is an  
opportunity to save 20% with the purchase of both books.

The author  is very knowledgeable in this field of antennas and he is 
very thorough in  his nearly 600 pages in these 2 Volumes describing 
each antenna, its  construction and what to expect of its performance 
for a particular use.  Included are 100s of illustrations, animated 
demos and modeling  files.

Volume 1
With 285 pages, is about antenna fundamentals and  why and how an 
antenna radiates. The antennas discussed are mostly dipoles  or 
resembling such and horizontally polarized.

Volume 2
With 303  pages, vertically polarized antennas are highlighted and 
how they perform  with their various radiating properties. Included 
are the various loop  antennas which can be either easily horizontal 
or vertical polarized. What  are the advantages or disadvantages of 
antennas differently polarized?  Discover what and how they perform.

A detailed list of the topics  covered in the 2 Volumes can be found 
at this web page -- and how to  order:
