Antennas – John Kraus – 3rd Edition


This is the reference for many antenna , here you can find things like directional coupling, standing and incidents, the need for lines, point sources, and much more …
This is an interesting review of John Kraus’s classic Antenna book, which has always been known as the “Antenna Bible”. A new co-author, Ronald Marhefka has joined the team of authors of this review. Many new and modern have been added-hence the title change of with all applications. In addition, the references have been updated to include recent additions to the literature.
