4.0 out of 5 stars usefull as an introduction
It serves as a good and short introduction to RF, for people with no previous experience. Does not go into depth in any of the topics described but gives a good overview. Easily read and lots of examples.

3.0 out of 5 stars Beware!
IMPORTANT: THIS BOOK DOES NOT USE SI UNITS!

Other than that; the book makes use of many great examples and detailed explanations, but the equations are not applicable. I am sorry to say that it will not find its way to my bookshelf for this single reason.

5.0 out of 5 stars RF Circuit design, 27 Nov 2011
This review is from: RF Circuit Design (Paperback)
The book is hugely informative, fills in many technical points that are mostly a secret in the RF comm's business for circuit design. For any Radio Amateur or Radio Ham as myself, it is a book to have for the shelf and to both refernce and learn from, even if it is just a check up ones own knowledge.

5.0 out of 5 stars Detailed and written in simple language, 9 Oct 2010
By 
This review is from: RF Circuit Design (Paperback)
This book is quite large (bigger than A4 sized paper) and so packs quite a lot of information in 240 pages. Sure there are more detailed books, but anyone who reads this book would then be well prepared to research any topic in greater detail.
This book has a lot of 'worked examples' where the author shows the steps (calculations) to reach a given design. This means that it is easy to adapt the design, i.e. this book is very practical.
Furthermore the author is not trying to complicate things, and actually writes in plain language, which helps greatly.

The book also has quite a few tables to help design filters without software (well, it is useful to get the ballpark or for confirmation that you're on the right track) and also explains the Smith chart very well.

The last few sections of the book describe some of the design and simulation tools that are available, which is great to let us know how engineers design for RF.

This review is from: RF Circuit Design (Paperback)
Perfect for anyone who wants to understand RF circuit design without all the heavy lifting maths that is usually associated to it.
It's a very good book that will never leave your desk side for too long.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book on RF design, 7 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: RF Circuit Design (Paperback)
This is an excellent book for anyone studying or interested in RF engineering, it covers antennas,amplifiers,filters an much more. The only gripe I have with this book is it does not cover electromagnetism or maxwell's equations but other than that it is an excellent book and will be useful to physics and engineering students
