Aimed at radio amateurs, short wave listeners and other radio enthusiasts, this book has been based on the extremely popular Practical Wire Antennas by John Heys, G3BDQ and it has been hugely extended with many more practical antenna designs as well as being fully revised for the 21st Century. Nearly doubling in size with even more designs this practical book holds many complete and easy to understand recipes for a wide range of wire antennas for the HF bands between 1.8 and 30 MHz.
Practical Wire Antennas 2 contains just about every type of wire antenna imaginable including plenty of original designs that cannot be found in other publications. For anyone interested in antenna experimentation and construction, this book is sure to provide ideas for any requirement. Some will fit small urban gardens while others are aimed at much larger spaces.
Theory is kept to a minimum throughout the book, and only a few formulas are given where they are necessary to allow the reader to calculate the lengths of various antennas. Practical Wire Antennas 2 has chapters covering feed lines, dipoles, antennas with tuned feeders, loop antennas, end-fed wires, verticals and practical aspects of antenna work. The book also provides a wealth of information and real practical experience gained over many years and by many people on the mechanics of antenna building and installation. It also includes designs for ATUs for almost every type of antenna.
Practical Wire Antennas 2 provides a collection of antenna designs and ideas that will help capture the enjoyment of experimenting in the true spirit of amateur radio. This book will help improve any station and is a must have book for anyone interested in antenna construction.
