Unless you’re really in love with the ARRL and want to give your money to them, you may want to consider Amazon instead when it comes to ARRL-published books.
For many a moon now I’ve wanted to learn antenna modeling. I’ve tinkered with the programs and read about a million online guides and examples…
But for me to learn antenna modeling, someone’s going to have to take me by the hand and tip-toe me through it.
Ward Silver N0AX appears to have read my mind – is there anything he can’t do? I like Ward’s writing style and am confident that this is exactly the book I need.
The new book by Ward is Antenna Modeling For Beginners, published by the ARRL in October 2012.
I came within a hair’s breadth of clicking the “Order Now” button but thought I’d do a search for online reviews first. I didn’t find any reviews but the search took me to another source for the book – Amazon.
The ARRL’s price for the book is $35 plus 10.50 to send it to me via the cheapest method. That makes the book $45.50 according to my advanced calulations.
The same book from Amazon is $25.50 and shipping is free.
What a huge difference!
Further comparisons show similar price differences for other ARRL books from these two sources.
My book is on the way – guess who I ordered from – and I’ll have it only two days after ordering it.
