L. B. Cebik, W4RNL, has written extensively about antennas and antenna modeling (as well as other electronics subjects) in most of the U.S. ham journals, including QST, CQ, Communications Quarterly, QEX, Ham Radio, 73, QRP Quarterly, Radio-Electronics, and QRPp. Besides the continuing series of antenna modeling columns he does for antenneX, he also writes a column for 10-10 News (An-Ten-Ten-nas) and another for Low Down (Antennas From the Ground Up). A life member of ARRL, he serves as both Technical and Educational Advisor. Several years ago, LB joined the position as Technical Editor for antenneX.

L. B. has published over a dozen books, with works on antennas for both the beginner and the advanced student. Among his books are a basic tutorial in the use of NEC antenna modeling software and compilations of his many shorter pieces. Plus, 18 of his books have been published by antenneX and listed in the BookShelf at this website.

He has been a ham since 1954 and is also a life member of QCWA and of 10-10 International, for which he maintains an extensive web site. He also maintains a web site of his own ( http://www.cebik.com ) on which he has placed a large collection of entries from his notebooks. A teacher for over 30 years, he is retired and professor emeritus of philosophy at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. antenneX is very fortunate, indeed, to have had LB as a member of its writing team and Tech Editor for the past 11 years.

Alas, LB transcended this world in April 2008. He is missed by so many lives he touched.
