In this article I wanted to tell a great deal about a remarkable man, inventor, Ted Hart.
In this article I want to pay tribute and talk a little about a remarkable man and inventor of the E(electrical) H(magnetic) antennas, Ted Hart.
Since its inception and introduction into the amateur radio world there has been many nay-sayers against the EH antennas, they say 'its not theoretically possible'. But, the ‘proof of the pudding is in the eating’ and these doubts will pass and in time, as more and more radio amateurs construct and tune these antennas. Based on my experiences of constructing EH antennas which are extremely efficient in view of their size and simple construction methods, I am sure they will be widely used within the armoury of radio amateurs as indeed they are now being used by AM broadcasters. I would also like to say that a large debt of gratitude is owed to all radio hams and antenna experimenters everywhere who have ignored 'traditional' Hertzian wisdom and are not afraid to 'think outside the box' to construct and tune these antennas according to new principles. Thank you all. In conclusion, I want to offer a BOOK (book.pdf 1 Mb) by Ted Hart on EH antenna construction/tuning in PDF format (working language English). Many successes all in experiments. Successes! 73!
