PDF "I.D. Poole - Antennas for VHF and UHF"
The book is aimed at amateur radio and short wave listening enthusiasts although it will provide a valuable reference for anyone interested in antennas for these frequencies. The VHF and UHF bands provide an exciting opportunity for experimentation with antennas. Their size at these frequencies means that they do not occupy great amounts of space and most people can experiment with constructing their own antennas.
"VHF / UHF Antennas" contains both the basic theory and constructional details for many antenna designs. The book takes the reader through the essentials in an easy to understand fashion. Antenna fundamentals as well as vital information about feeders are included. Chapters are then devoted to different types of antenna from dipoles to Yagis, and verticals to log periodic antennas giving details of the way in which they work and constructional details for a variety of designs. The final chapters in the book cover measurements that can be undertaken and installation techniques. The book is a gold mine of information for anyone wanting to understand more about antennas for the VHF and UHF bands as well as constructing them. As such it will be a valuable resource for anyone interested in antennas whether newcomer or experienced hand.
