This edition contains BASIC computer programs for antenna design and impedance matching, expanded coverage of long-wire directional antennas and radio-wave propagation theory, and new material on small loop direction-finding antennas. It presents practical projects, providing nuts-and-bolts information on an array of antenna types, including: high frequency dipole, vertically polarized HF, multi-band and tunable wire, hidden and limited-space, directional-phased vertical and directional beam, VHF/UHF transmitting and receiving antennas, antennas for shortwave reception, microwave antennas and mobile, marine and emergency antennas. Also explained are circuits and methods for matching antenna load impedance to an RF source or transmission line, antenna measurement and adjustment methods, antenna measurement and adjustment methods, antenna grounding techniques and how to use the Smith chart as a problem-solving device.

From the Back Cover:

The world's favorite antenna book. The most popular book on antennas ever written, widely known as "the antenna builder's bible," Joseph J. Carr's Practical Antenna Handbook, Third Edition is a work for anyone with an interest in antennas, from the newest of novices to the most experienced engineer. This empowering book gives you all kinds of projects, yes. And it gives you material that explains why what you did works. But most importantly, it prepares you to design and construct your own antennas "for the cases," Carr modestly suggests, "That the author thoughtlessly failed to cover." This third edition blends, in Joseph J. Carr's words, "the theoretical concepts that the engineers and others need to design practical antennas, and the hard-learned practical lessons derived from actually building and using antennas--real antennas made of real metal--not merely theoretical constructs on a blackboard." Add it to your working library, and pretty soon it'll assume a favorite spot inside your toolbox, beaten up, tattered, annotated with your persona notes... obviously used to the fullest extent.
