Pretty good book overall--not what I had expected on some parts
on March 13, 2011
I am gradually building up my ham radio library. I ordered the book, hoping it would also have information about antenna theory, e.g. how they work. I was disappointed that it did not do that. I haven't gotten the more expensive ARRL books yet. A lot of the projects take up some serious property. I have a small yard, and a lot of them either didn't apply to me or were considerably larger than my yard. Some articles on vacation dipoles, slopers vs. vee vs. horizontal dipoles vs. OCFD, etc. would have been nice. Other than that, I've enjoyed reading the book, and have learned several things I didn't previously know.
