Happened across a great antenna book. Practical Antenna Handbook written by Joseph J. Cox. Published by McGraw Hill. It's 574 pages and has all the information contained in numerous ARRL publications that cost $24 each. This book can be found on Amazon in paperback, used for $12. Or you can buy it new in paperback for $39.95 or in hard back for something like $130. Perhaps this should be one of your first antenna books. Or 6th. Now I wouldn't give $130 but absolutely for $12. Has anyone else run across this publication?

Hi OM James,

Are you referring to 'Practical Antenna Handbook by Joseph J. Carr'?

It's quite comprehensive but the focus is more on 'receiving' antennas.

Many thanks.

Good catch, yes it is Joseph J. Carr not Cox. Thanks for the clarification. There are numerous receiving antennas but also quite a bit of easily understood theory that applies to all. With 574 pages it has some of everything. Is it the ARRL Handbook? No but I believe For $12 it's worth having in the library.
Again thanks for the correction.

Hi OM James,

Your'e dead right.

A 1995 Indian edition of the book priced at the then equivalent of $2.50 has a well deserved place in my library!

David you may be correct about the copyright issue in this case and I hope everyone that downloaded the PDF copy of Practical Antenna Handbook deleted it as I have after discovering that it was a full copy of the book and not just a sample edition that Amazon has on their web site. Good job David. Nice to see that there are plenty of Police around here to advise us about these moral issues. You know stuff like right and wrong, god and the devil. Since I no longer live with my mom I do need guidance at times. Thanks again.

You forgot illegal; it is illegal to steal IP just as it is illegal to steal physical property.  

http://www.uspto.gov/about/ipm/industries_in_focus.jsp

According the US Patent and Trademark Office IP (Intellectual Property) supports 35% of the U.S. GDP, 40 million jobs, and contributes $5T to the economy yearly. The theft of patents, software, music, movies, books and other forms of IP erodes the U.S. economy while strengthening the economy of countries that steal IP. China is a prime example.  

IP intensive US industries accounted for 19% of U.S. exports in 2007 and are the fastest growing industrial sector.

Stealing software is an even larger problem.  Linux rocks... Fred
