desire your big help - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam.

Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

Yeah - I thought the same about Amazon, but let's not be unkind.

"Antenna Theory and Design" is not something you can casually absorb in a few hours from an e-book, and then credibly launch into a "proposal". Some folk eg. me) have spent a large fraction of their lives untangling antenna theory, and can only get a reasonable grip on a practical subset of it.

From the context of your question, my guess is that you need a general appreciation of the antenna types, and the frequency ranges they best suit. You want to know the constraints of physical size, and cost, and durability. A proposal for a GPS device for a vehicle is going to be very different to one for a newsfeed dish on a field, or a telemetry antenna suited for installation on a satellite. You can gain much of this from the net for free using the generous information on Ham radio enthusiast pages.

Use Google Search for "ARRL". It will lead you into a mess of links where you are bound to get lots of relavent stuff. Try also Wikipedia. Good hunting.
