Artech House

680 pages




This is an extensively revised and updated new edition of the best-selling Mobile Antenna Systems Handbook . Comprehensive, authoritative and practical, it provides the information you need to understand the relationship between the elements involved in antenna systems design for mobile communications. You get sound advice in choosing the appropriate antenna for any given requirement - including antennas for ITS, access to the latest modeling formulas for macro, micro and pico cell propagation, and guidance on the latest RF safety standards and measurement techniques.


Up-to-date information on adaptive base station and handset antenna design enables you to quickly achieve your design targets. From improved signal processing to more precise propagation methods, new sections provide you with cutting-edge design techniques that greatly increase system capacity and flexibility to deliver today’s most sought-after mobile communication services. This detailed handbook contains over 470 illustrations and 190 equations.
