Got a copy of the new English translation of Rothammel’s antenna book.

What a beast this is! It has more in it than I would have thought possible and nearly 1600 pages.

Unfortunately I never read the book. But it is often recommended for antenna construction.

Writing a knowledge book of 1600 pages is passion...

@Wilfred There's a lot of very practical content in there so I can see why it comes recommended.

Even translating it must have be an absolutely epic job!

Translating is a lot of hours of work. Great respect for this!

Operators can discuss for hours on some antenna topics. (Supply line, soldering or building material.) I assume that this book does not fill dozens of pages with it.
