Antennas – John Kraus – 3rd Edition


This book is the reference for many antenna books, here you can find things like directional coupling, standing waves and incidents, the need for transmission 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 applications have been added-hence the title change of Antennas with all applications. In addition, the references have been updated to include recent additions to the literature.
