ARRL Antenna Book — 23rd Edition. This material was included on the CD-ROM accompanying the 23rd edition of the ARRL. Antenna Book. You may print a. antennas that really work! This book will provide a foundation in antenna theory and design necessary for anyone under- taking more advanced topics. ARRL. turned to The ARRL Antenna Book as THE source of current antenna theory and a wealth of practical Document Format (PDF) file on ARRLWeb. If you think.
In this one book, you will find all of the information you need to design complete antenna systems—from planning, to design and construction. The Antenna Book includes treatments for nearly any radio band and operating application: low-band, HF, VHF, UHF and microwave; fixed station, portable, mobile, maritime, satellite and more! New and Improved! This twenty-second edition includes a complete reorganization, new content, and exciting new antenna projects: Every chapter updated or rewritten, including limited-space antennas, portable and mobile antennas, receiving antennas, building towers, and antenna system troubleshooting New designs, including a C-pole ground-independent HF antenna, a 40 meter Moxon beam, and improved half-element designs for Yagis Updated EZNEC-ARRL version 5. The CD-ROM includes all of the fully searchable text and illustrations in the printed book, plus utility programs and supplemental content from expert contributors.
The alternation of AC current flowing through an antenna accelerates the electrons in its conductor, pulling them forward and backward in sync with the frequency of the current.
When accelerated, electrons radiate electromagnetic waves which also have momentum. An unavoidable part of the loss resistance comes from electrical resistance in the conductor the antenna is made of.
Electrons moving through any metal are scattered off its metallic crystal lattice which also diminishes the electrons' momentum, transferring energy from the electrons to the lattice by impulse. The Ohmic resistance represents the energy lost by the electrons from collision with the metal atoms in the lattice, and the resulting vibrations of the lattice are perceived as heat.
Loss resistance can also include loss from heating the earth below the antenna and in conductive objects nearby, called ground loss even though the loss is not always in the soil. The heat results from electrical and magnetic fields from the antenna similarly accelerating electrons in the soil or an adjacent conductor, such as the metal roof of a nearby building. Likewise field lines interrupted between a monopole antenna and its counterpoise or ground plane , and magnetic field lines blocked from circulating around a wire in any kind of antenna.
However, since many non-metals, including most soils, are transparent or semi-transparent to magnetic fields, the greatest ground loss is usually via the antenna's electric field.
Since the antenna's field lines diminish with distance from the antenna, ground losses can be reduced or eliminated by placing the antenna strategically far away from any nearby electrical or magnetic obstacle. With the exception of aviation and spacecraft antennas, the greatest source of loss is nearly always the soil.
So, for example, very high frequency antennas are small enough to be feasibly mounted on a non-conducting mast several quarter- wavelengths above the earth, far from metal-clad buildings, metal-frame structures, or other antennas. In general, electrical power is calculated by: The result is an effective resistance: Further, the energy lost via Ohmic resistance and via radiation resistance is carried away by electromagnetic radiation in both cases: From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

In addition, Chapters 8 to 14 have been rewritten to incorporate more material on software defined radio SDR and digital signal processing DSP. There has also been a comprehensive update of the RFI material.
This publication is suitable for anyone, no matter their background or skill level. The book begins with a thorough introduction to the art of Amateur Radio with lots of helpful information about getting licensed, joining the community of amateurs, how to set up your first station, getting on the air, participating in public service, and it concludes with a glossary of helpful resources for newcomers of all backgrounds.
The second chapter is devoted to the science of radio, beginning with — the beginning. It includes a thorough grounding in electronic fundamentals commencing with an elementary discussion of basic electricity for students at any level. For the new ham, the Handbook is a great deal to absorb taken at once; but if you stick with it, you will be amazed at how quickly you become familiar, not only with the theory, but also with the practical aspects of radio — from long waves to microwaves.
So, stick with it! Every year, the editors try to make the Handbook better. This edition is the most comprehensive revision since the edition. The digital world is quickly descending on Amateur Radio, and our reference book labors hard to keep up with this fast-changing dimension.
Looking back, however, Jerry Clement reworks the venerable 6-meter halo antenna, which many of us used in our first experiments with VHF AM: a Heathkit Sixer lunchbox feeding a halo on the rear bumper.
