Antennas – Markov

In this post, we will see the book Antennas by G. T. Markov.

About the book

A book detailing theory and design of various types of antennas. The book is composed of three parts. The first part deals with general theory of radio wave propagation, radiation and reception. Using classical electrodynamics different antenna types are described with their parameters. Second part describes theory of transmission lines of radio waves. Different configurations of transmission lines and their effects are derived. The third part of the book describes different types of antenna devices for different frequency ranges.

The book was translated from Russian by I. Sokolov and was published in 1958 by Progress. There is a Spanish version too.
