An Introduction to Antenna Modelling

Just a quick reminder that my new book "An Introduction to Antenna Modelling" is now available.

The book looks at the free MMANA-GAL antenna modelling program that lets you design and optimise a whole host of antennas – all on your PC.

It shows you step-by-step how to input antenna designs into MMANA-GAL, how to adapt designs you are given and how to optimise your designs for the best performance.

By the time you have finished you should be able to model a whole host of antennas including dipoles, the G5RV, the W3DZZ trapped dipole, verticals, off-centre fed dipoles (OCFD), magnetic loop antennas and many more.

The book also includes a CD-ROM that not only contains the MMANA-GAL software so you can get started immediately, but sample antenna files too. It also includes other antenna modelling software including EZNEC, MININEC Pro and 4nec2. Plus there are also more than 30 other amateur radio programmes included.

The RSGB has also managed to keep the price below £10.
