Direct link for Schmitt reference

The reference "Understanding electromagnetic fields and antenna radiation takes (almost) no math", by Ron Schmitt, EDN Magazine, March 2 2000 is linked to a host that is not related to the publisher (very useful article, by the way). Since the article is freely available on the EDN website, shouldn't the link be made to that page? Here is a direct link: That page contains a link to the PDF version, which is the same as the one currently linked.

bandwidth limit

The June 2009 Antennas and Propagation article addresses only magnetic dipole antennas, but the conclusions apply to electric dipoles by the symmetry between electric and magnetic fields. It gives a tighter upper bound for loop antenna band widths. Magnetic materials help by lowering H for a given B.


It sure seems the resource edicts contained in here... Resource: Article_size

...have been utterly ignored for this important article in part due to the copy and paste of other articles within this one. Has anyone even bothered to make this article encyclopedic and not a college text? crcwiki (talk) 14:30, 6 September 2017 (UTC)

This is not a useful observation. Every resource article contains at least one extra word and one error. Therefore the ultimate resource article is one word that is spelled wrong. This is the encyclopedia anyone can edit, have at it! -Wtshymanski (talk) 16:46, 6 September 2017 (UTC)
@Crcwiki: I absolutely agree with you; this article is bloated with unnecessary verbiage. The "readable prose size" is 71k which is in the "probably should be divided" range; however I don't think it needs to be split, just edited to remove hot air. Most of the sections on antenna properties are full of unnecessary digressions and chatty examples that sound like they were lifted from QST. They could be rewritten to half their word count and the understandability improved. If nobody else does, I might take a whack at it when I get some time. I'd hate to see somebody try to read this article on his mobile phone. --ChetvornoTALK 00:16, 18 January 2019 (UTC)

Too much animation

Is there some way to freeze the GIFs? A browser setting? I find the writhing pictures nauseating to look at after a few minutes. --Wtshymanski (talk) 03:05, 19 January 2019 (UTC)

Fractal Antenna needs to be added somewhere.

There is a resource page on "Fractal Antenna" and I'm confused about it not being mentioned in the resource page "Antenna." [1]Mbman8 (talk) 22:07, 14 June 2019 (UTC)
