5.0 out of 5 stars A "must-have" for radio amateurs 11 April 2012
By wes - Published on Amazon.com

As with most editions of the ARRL antenna book, much of the valuable (and proven) reference material doesn't change. This edition was updated a fair amount, had some new articles, and included the CD reference, with supplemental notes. This ability to character-search on a topic, as well as the bundled demo version of EZNEC antenna modeling software, makes it a really good bargain. If you don't have this one on your shelf, you need to, simple as that. I suspect it will be referred back to for many years to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Required Reference For Radio Geeks 29 May 2012
By Quin - Published on Amazon.com
I have tinkered with antenna construction since high school. I was never sorry to have dropped the cash down for this book. Probably 10 times more info than I will ever need and if I am not pulling out the basic math for construction, there is so much in this book, it gives me endless ideas.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Antenna Book 3 July 2012
By Doug - Published on Amazon.com

As an Amateur Radio operator, especially if you are one that would rather build your own Antenna's and save mega bucks, this is a must for your amateur radio library. You can get all the plans you can think of off the net for any HF/UHF/VHF antenna's, but unless you know at least some of the principles of anatenna operation your only half there.

Best book on Antenna's.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential to beginners through experts. 17 Jun 2013
By Luister - Published on Amazon.com

My first copy of this book was the 14th edition. After years of learning, researching, dreaming, and building, that book needed to be replaced. Pages yellowed, (thanks to their acid paper), worn cover, and sections falling out. What is inside, makes it an excellent book. Surely, it could not be improved much.

I decided to purchase the latest edition, and WOW! Have things changed! The 22nd edition is not just a rehash. The amount of new material is mind boggling, and honestly, to a radio and electronics geek like me, very exciting. The book is huge and heavy, and I don't think the pages will rot and yellow like an old newspaper anymore, though I can't confirm that it is acid free paper.

The book is reorganized and they spent a lot of time simplifying the looking up of topics. So many projects from the pages of QST have been added, that author and project indexes have been included. They included a CD ROM of the entire book, so you can go to your computer, and search for specific words or phrases. That is all I expected, but there are many other bits of useful software that they put on the disc, including all kinds of designing programs.

If you have interest in antennas at all, this book needs to be in your library.
