The VK Antenna Handbook for Restricted Spaces --- Phil Grimshaw VK4KVK
This book was written as a reference source of ideas for ham operators challenged with a lack of space to erect antennas. The book contains ideas and examples gleened from nearly 30 years of first hand experience by the author installing antennas in confined spaces. Very few hams have the ability to install directional antennas on all the HF bands allocated to ham radio. Having the space is only the first problem. Then you discover just how big HF directional antennas are. There in lies the inspiration for this book. The material presented in the book has been written to be easy to understand with a view to aiding the reader in building their own versions of the antennas discussed. Many different types of antenna are discussed. The author includes a number of his own patented antenna designs. If there is one ham book you treat yourself to this year, then this should be it.

The VK G5RV Handbook --- By Phillip Grimshaw VK4KVK
This book was written as a reference source for some new ideas on a well known ham antenna. The G5RV has served the needs of hams the world over for a very long time. But the reality is the standard G5RV is NOT a small antenna with a tip-to-tip length of some 31m (or 102ft). There in lies the inspiration for this book. The material presented in the book has been written to be easy to understand with a view to aiding the reader in building their own versions of the G5RV. Many different types of antenna are discussed. It explores mini-G5RV's, half-size-G5RV's, eXtended-G5RV's. It explores the opportunity for the ham to start with the space they have available and then build a G5RV to fit their space requirements. Noting that the G5RV was created long before the WARC bands became available, the book also explores WARC-specific G5RV's. The book still retains that fundamental trait of all of VK4KVK's books - antennas for restricted spaces, where size does matter!

GPS and Amateur Radio
-- --By Walter Fields, W4WCF The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a satellite-based, radio navigation system. GPS devices have become commonplace in consumer electronics. GPS units and GPS technology is used in our cars, on our boats, in cell phones, in our personal computers and PDAs. GPS has improved the way we navigate, communicate, and move about the planet. With this book, you’ll explore GPS: its history, how it works, and navigating with a GPS receiver. We’ll also examine how Amateur Radio operators (or “hams”) have made use of GPS technology. A popular ham radio application is in the Automatic Position Reporting System, or APRS*. By connecting inexpensive GPS receivers to their radio gear, hams transmit their positions and other information, which is then displayed on maps at the receiving stations. The result is an effective method of direction finding for public service activities such as search-and-rescue—and for fun! *APRS® is a registered trademark of Bob Bruninga, WB4APR. © 2007, The American Radio Relay League, Inc.

The ARRL Antenna Book
-- 21st Edition All the information you need to design your own complete antenna system. Since the first edition in September 1939, radio amateurs and professional engineers have turned to The ARRL Antenna Book as THE source of current antenna theory and a wealth of practical how-to construction projects. Use this book to discover even the most basic antenna designs-- wire and loop antennas, verticals, and Yagis--and for advanced antenna theory and applications. Many of the antennas in this edition benefit directly from advances in sophisticated computer modeling. This 21st edition has been extensively revised to include information you can use to build highly optimized or specialized antennas. The book includes new content on Near Vertical Incidence Skywave (NVIS) techniques, phased arrays, S-parameters as used in modern vector network analyzers (VNA), Beverage receiving antennas, mobile “screwdriver” antennas, ionospheric area-coverage maps, and much…much more. Fully searchable CD-ROM included! Bundled with this book is a CD-ROM containing The ARRL Antenna Book in its entirety, using the popular Adobe® Reader® software for Microsoft® Windows® and Macintosh® systems. View, search and print from the entire text, including images, photographs, drawings…everything!

The CD-ROM contains additional utility programs, including: • • • • • • YW -- Yagi for Windows TLW -- Transmission Line for Windows HFTA -- HF Terrain Assessment for Windows Range-Bearing -- compute range/bearing or latitude/longitude Arrayfeed1 -- designing phased-array feed systems EZNEC-ARRL -- antenna modeling for Windows

Thousands of Propagation Tables Propagation forecasts for more than 170 QTHs around the world for all portions of the solar cycle are included on the CD-ROM (PDF format for Adobe Acrobat Reader). CD-ROM System Requirements Microsoft Windows 98 or later for PCs. Publication PDF files can be view on any Apple Macintosh computer that has Preview or Adobe Reader ver. 7 or 8 loaded.

Low Profile Amateur Radio
-- Second Edition By Al Brogdon, W1AB

More and more ham radio operators are faced with installing equipment and antennas amid a flurry of modern day limitations. The need to operate a low profile Amateur Radio station may be imposed by the confines of a small home or apartment. Other hams are restricted by deeds or leases that regulate the size of the antenna they can install. First edition readers will find this second edition contains ALL NEW material. Low Profile Amateur Radio, second edition, includes the information you need to operate your station under many types of restrictive situations. Follow the easygoing discussions of Al Brogdon, W1AB, as he provides details for many real-life examples and techniques for a variety of low profile circumstances. Contents: • Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions • Low-Profile HF Antennas • Disguised Antennas • Indoor Antennas • Operating Modes and Tips • Interference • Antenna Tuners • Transmitter Output Power • Low-Profile VHF/UHF Antennas • Mobile Operating ...and more! Second edition, © 2006. Published by American Radio Relay League (ARRL). (ISBN: 087259-974-4) #9744

APRS -- Moving Hams on Radio and the Internet
-- A Guide to the Automatic Position Reporting System by Stan Horzepa, WA1LOU APRS is among the most popular activities using personal computers in ham radio applications. Getting started often requires little more than a VHF radio and computer. With a portable Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver, you have precise position information at your fingertips. Connect the GPS receiver to your APRS station, and you can transmit your location information even as you're moving! • Track moving objects on maps (other stations, public service vehicles, marathon runners, etc.). • Display weather statistics and storm warnings. • Find a hidden transmitter or jammer. • Access the APRS network on the Internet (even without a radio!) In this book, you'll learn how to configure hardware and software to make the best use of your APRS station. Software examples include programs for Windows, Mac and Linux. Follow detailed discussions of APRS operation and technical support. To help you get stated, there's also a complete Glossary of Terms and a summary of APRS software commands. APRS -- Moving Hams on Radio and the Internet is the third APRS book written by QST columnist and ARRL author Stan Horzepa, WA1LOU. Softcover. © 2004, The American Radio Relay League, Inc.
