Hand-carried QRP Antennas, by Peter Parker VK3YE, is the new book that takes the mystery out of portable antennas.
After inviting you to assess your needs, it discusses the pros and cons of popular types. Its style is brisk and practical with almost no maths.
Many ideas for cheap but good materials suitable for portable antennas are given. Beginners and those returning to radio after a break should especially find this section handy.
Finally there’s construction details on a variety of simple but practical antennas and accessories suitable for portable operating. All have been built and tested by the author over almost 30 years of successful QRP activity.
Hand-carried QRP antennas is an ebook readable on most devices (free software available if you don’t have a Kindle). It’s Peter’s second book, following on from the popular Minimum QRP, released last year.
