Lightning on the horizon? You are not worried … because you installed the lightning protection devices described in this e-book, and you have taken the preventive measures as prescribed.
But that’s not all. Your HF antenna is now transmitting more RF power, and your receiver is getting more milliwatts from your antenna system, because you learned what types of antenna tuners to avoid. You are now using an efficient tuner, and you even know how it works.
Your antenna tuner will likely have its own SWR/PWR meter. Notwithstanding, this e-book will help you decide if you still need an outboard one, and which meter will best meet your needs.
Furthermore, armed with the valuable information you read here, you finally acquired the antenna analyzer to satisfy the expectations of the antenna experimenter in you.
Emboldened by your recent successful acquisitions, you now have the antenna tower you were dreaming of. You heeded the recommendations this e-book provided and, thus, avoided all the pitfalls that await the unwary.
Finally, an e-book series on HF antennas would not be complete without a word on HF signal propagation. It outlines the software and online services available today which enable you to take full advantage of band openings.
