If you're going to put up an antenna, why not do it right and get the best performance for the time spent? For a low key yet effective introduction to wire antennas this is a wonderful little book. Nowhere near as long, or complex, as the ARRL Antenna Handbook, this concise volume presents some elementary theory and a number of practical designs for wire antennas. I've lent my copy to new hams several times and from all reports it's been a big help.
This book is highly recommended as a basic reference and a good stepping stone to the next level.
Not loaded with heavy math and theory. Just the basics and easy to understand. Why waste money on purchased antennas when you can make your own for just a few dollars. You have the satisfaction of communicating on an antenna you have hand made.
