    For anyone interested in the “Why it works” not “how it works” this is a book for you, and whats more it covers the Maxwell Equations and explains them rather well. Also it provides help with design for EzNec

    Useful but could be better, 16 Mar. 2016

    There is a lot of good info here, but it could be better. Be warned, it is still pretty mathematical. Concepts like permittivity and permeability are introduced without explanation. Some curious omissions like Fresnel and Fraunhofer zones, and treatment of Yagis seems brief. Annoying copy-editing errors, like missing diagrams, formulae swapping from pi symbol to p then back again, mixing up mute and moot, split infinitives etc. But still a more useful reference than the more academic texts.

    This is not a run of the mill ham radio antenna book. If you want to understand the theory behind Antennas and are not scared off by maths then this is the book for you. It’s arguably the best treatment of the subject in print. But if you just want to make an antenna or two without understanding the physics you might find one of the excellent ARRL antenna books a better choice.
