Whether through choice or circumstance, more radio amateurs than ever before are enjoying portable operating.
Suitable equipment is widely available but what about antennas? Manufactured antennas exist but only some suit lightweight portable activity.
And, it's easy to overpay for something that's too heavy and too lossy for successful QRP.
More Hand-carried QRP antennas takes the mystery out of portable antennas. It's a practical manual that builds on the very popular Hand-carried QRP antennas, my first portable QRP antenna book.
With the basics covered in the first volume, More Hand-carried QRP antennas gets straight down to business with descriptions of over thirty antenna projects. There are also some background articles and ideas for the antenna experimenter.
More Hand-carried QRP antennas devotes more attention to upper HF, VHF and UHF antennas, complementing the lower-HF focus of the first volume. But you'll still find projects for bands down to 1.8 MHz, including some exciting loop and loaded pole ideas.
Everything presented has been built and tested by the author over almost 30 years of successful QRP activity.
More Hand-carried QRP antennas is available in ebook format with a paperback edition coming soon. It's the author's seventh book, following on from popular previous titles for QRP operators, antenna builders, radio beginners and more.
