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.

NOTICE: Search engines nowadays penalize websites for having many hyperlinks on a web page, so I no longer keep a list of my favorites. Most search engines do a really good job of locating useful data if your search terms are well thought out, so rather than me supposing I know what you are looking for, I have provided this Search box for you to use. If you are interested in advertising, please visit my Advertising information page. Thank you.
