Review quote

'At last: an approachable book addressing small antennas and their design ... This book addresses the very important area of small antennas with both the theory and a lot of useful practical design information ... Modern Small Antennas helps by providing not only the background theory, but also the practical implementation including: basic theory and fundamentals; design optimization; evaluation; measurements; and simulation techniques.' Ian Poole, 'A comprehensive glossary provides about forty pages of catalogued small antennas with references back to where they are introduced in the text. This feature greatly enhances the usefulness of the book as there are so many different types, styles and shapes of antennas discussed ... Modern Small Antennas is a book that would be very handy for just about any designer of small or covert wireless communications, video, data, tag, security and sensor devices. The book cites many examples and the authors include extensive references ... I subscribe to a couple of internet sites (blogs) that address antenna issues. Many of the contemporary questions asked would conveniently be answered if the inquirer had this book in his or her possession.' Tom Perkins, High Frequency Electronicsshow more
