Radio is a fantastic hobby - you can pick-up world music, news and entertainment, even with quite simple equipment.

The heart of exploring this enchanting virtual world (perhaps the first virtual world, well before the internet!) is the radio receiver, but after a little experimentation one begins to realise that the antenna is a crucial component.

The design, construction and dreaming up of new antenna systems promises vast improvements in the performance of a radio system. What's more its possible to make a high performance antenna from bits of wire and simple insulators at very little cost, apart from the time and effort involved - as a result building antennas can be very satisfying, rewarding and inspirational.
