This edition of the eBook "Radio Antenna Engineering" is based on the printed copy of Edmund A. Laport's book "Radio Antenna Engineering" published in 1952. As the copyright of this book has not been renewed in 1964 it has fallen into public domain (click here for more information on copyright renewal).

This book covers the physics and electrical engineering of radio antennas in a concise and easy to understand way. Thus we included this book into the VIAS collection for its clear discussion of basic principles. We took this book, converted it to HTML and compiled it into a compendium on radio antennas, providing additional features such as links between the pages, an index, and a hierarchical table of contents. Further, we added a few new images, and converted the already existing images to a common style, so that the eBook can be regarded as a homogeneous work.

At this point we want to thank Pete Millet who is enthusiastic about tube based electronics and who provided an extraordinary contribution to the electronics community by providing many old books as scanned pages. See his home page for more.

Finally, we decided to additionally publish this eBook as an MS Windows HTMLHelp file offering the same navigation structure as the Web-based version. We hope that this service makes it easier for many beginners to get into transistor fundamentals.

Best wishes,
