    I agree with Pumblechook that the ARRL books are good. Very practical, and the latest ones come with CDROMs:

    I enjoyed my old intro antenna book back a million years ago in undergrad:

    "Antenna Theory and Design", by Stutzman and Thiele

    Not sure if there is a more current addition, or if it comes with a CDROM now.

    Thanks for the reply. I already note all of them down.

    I bought both books, not the ARRL!! Hopefully between these two and the Kraus book I have, That should give me a good start. I am planning to dive into this subject after I finish the last chapter of the EM theory.
    Thanks guys
