About the Author
Ted Hart has been an avid antenna experimenter for many years. His first antenna was a wire attached to a crystal set receiver circa 1940. He became a licensed amateur radio operator in 1948 (W5QJR) and is still active and has continued his antenna experiments. This book describes the Poynting Vector Antenna (PVA), which is the ultimate communications antenna, except for directional beams, and then two or more Poynting Vector Antennas in a non interactive phased array can provide that directivity. Circa 1988, Professor Hately and his colleagues published a paper in Electronics magazine describing the Crossed Field Antenna. Hart then began to exchange information with Professor Hately but in applying this information he was unsuccessful in causing a large model of the crossed field antenna to achieve the desired level of radiation. He then decided there must be a better way. The PVA is not conventional and, in fact, it is most gratifying to know that patent (US 6486846) was granted on the concept rather than a specific implementation. Patents 6864849 and 6956535 were issued later. Hart obtained a BSEE degree in 1957 at the University of Oklahoma. He worked for the Collins Radio Company for ten years, then for Omega-T-Systems and Scientific Communications. In these corporations, he worked as a Circuit Design and System Engineer, primarily related to airborne radar, radar remote systems for the FAA, and ground based portions of satellite systems. At Harris he became the Director of Engineering for a project valued at more than $130 Million. This was the ground terminal for the NASA TDRSS project. After retirement the majority of his time has been devoted to further development of the PVA. Now that the book is compete and both Hart and Birke are convinced that this is the ultimate antenna, no more experiments, analysis or development is deemed fruitful.

electromagnetism by suggesting a possible escape from some
inconsitencies present in the classical Maxwell's model.
This nice book testifies that this revision may actually play an
important role in real life applications.
