The following series of articles was originally prepared for publication in Low Down, the journal of the Colorado QRP Club. The series is designed to present fundamental antenna information, concentrating most fully on lower HF band wire antennas and related topics, to QRP operators. The series will grow with time, since numerous items are already prepared. However, they will not be listed here until they appear in Low Down. If highlighted, the listed item is available.

  1. Where Do Antennas Fit in Your Communications System?

  2. The Resonant Half-Wavelength Center-Fed Antenna

  3. Azimuth, Elevation, and Antenna Modeling

  4. Making a Dipole Fit the Space Available

  5. A 135' Center-Fed Multi-Band Dipole Data Compendium

  6. A 102' Center-Fed Multi-Band Dipole Data Compendium

  7. How to Make Your Tuner Work on Every Band

  8. Horizontal vs. Vertical Antennas on the Low HF Bands
