K5PA Presents: Genesis - the Birth of Antennas
Why and How antenna ideas are conceived, computer simulated, constructed, and then "born into-the-wild" for Field Day!
Interesting drawings, computer graphics, physical examples, measurements, and photo essays.
Light on the theory but heavy on Showing Real-World examples.
This is an Intuitive Approach to antenna design that includes ...
This was presented at Austin Summerfest 2004 ARRL Texas State Convention in August.
