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
