This book is designed to serve as a text for BE/BTech students of Electronics and Communication Engineering and for MTech students of Communication Engineering. It provides a thorough understanding of the fundamentals and applications of the subject. The book discusses the properties of several types of antennas such as dipoles, loop, Yagi, log-periodic and microstrip antennas and lucidly explains the phenomenon of wave propagations with emphasis on theory of operation and design procedures. It provides a comprehension of the principles of radiation and methods of excitation. The book also focuses on antenna measurements along with necessary requirements and different methods of measurement.
Written in an easy-to-understand manner, the text includes several illustrative examples. A large number of solved examples and exercise problems with varying difficulty levels are included to reinforce the theoretical understanding of concepts. The book also contains several objective-type questions in each chapter. The Appendices provide a rich source of information and expressions as well as design data. Read less
