Antennas - Hardware & Controls
Manufacturers & Services

These companies provide hardware and controls for antenna installations. Many also make antennas, but I thought it would be good to provide a separate page just for hardware and controls, since the Antennas vendor page is so large.

While antenna design is still largely an "black art," truly mastered by a select few practitioners, even rank amateurs can come up with a respectable antenna for most applications by using the sophisticated software available today. Of course, if you need a multi-band antenna that fits inside a cellphone or an omnidirectional antenna for inside a wii controller, then an expert is definitely in order. The folks listed here are just the experts you might need.
