Some late summer links for transmitter grounding and antenna information

Where can I learn more about grounding my AM transmitter? Is an RF ground the same as lightning protection? Can I use a counterpoise instead of a ground rod? What's the best antenna design for me?  How do antennas work, exactly?The answers to these and many more questions can be found on our late summer tour of great info sites.  We'll start with our talented friends at smeter.net:
     Ground characteristics, lightning protection grounds, radio frequency grounds, and practical grounding systems. Information about Earth characteristics, grounding material characteristics, benefits and practical issues related to grounding systems.
Also many small DOS software applicatons that will help you 'do the math.'
     While you're there, stop over at the Antenna Design Information & Software pages, for a wealth of free antenna design information and software. As smeter.net says, "Good antennas contribute greatly to the communication abilities of transmitting stations."
     Another point of interest on today's tour of interesting links would be
, the online source for understanding antennas. Introduction to antennas, antenna basics, types of antennas, antenna arrays, antenna measurements and many more antenna related topics
     You might also like to see your tax dollars at work, over at the United States Army Signal course on, what else, Antenna Theory. Designed to teach the theory, characteristic and capabilities of the various types of radio antennas from high frequency to ultra high frequency, with field expedient antenna designs.
     If your new to the low power world, you might prefer Antenna Theory Simplified, offering some simple techniques for better understanding of some terminology used and how it is applied in the antenna industry, providing the reader a wealth of knowledge that is essential for antenna selection and solutions.
