Post Good HF aerial book for Christmas
I've been looking at aerial books and there is a large range available. Are there any suggestions from you guys on what is a good book that covering the HF bands and possibly up to 6 Meters.? There is a list of books in Novembers Radcom mag but the question is which one to buy for myself for Christmas! Any suggestions??

It would depend on what you want, wire, stealth, quad, beam. If it is general, the ARRL antenna book is one of my most used ones.
These are the ones I have on the desk, hence are most used, others on the book shelf are not often used.
The least often used in the photo is the International Antenna Collection, hardly ever use it, supposed to be on the book shelf.

So if you want to know if a topic is in any of these, I can look for you.

Thanks Sangoma, It's mainly wire HF aerial that I'm interested in ranging from end fed one to folded dipoles etc. I currently have a ZS6BKW which works well, but I'm interested to try different one to find out if one is better than the other etc. I have a Rigexpert AA-54 so I should be able to tune them to the enquired frequency as well.

William Orr, W6SAI, did a few very good books on HF wire antennas, VHF beam antennas, and various stealth options.
Some of the books he is co authored with Stuart Cowen, W2LX.

Thanks Dave,

Another one for me to consider.

I'll probably make a list for Christmas and get one of the ones that have been mentioned above.
