Second Edition Corrections

955 Schantz UWB Cover IsoThis page hosts any corrections, updates, or comments on the second edition of The Art and Science of Ultrawideband Antennas. I’m confident an ample supply of corrections remain for the meticulous reader. Send me a note at if you spot an error, and I’ll be happy to post it here, crediting you with a hat tip (H/T) as the discoverer. Plus, you’ll get a credit in the acknowledgements for the eventual third edition.
