MCRP 6-22, MARINE CORPS REFERENCE PUBLICATION: ANTENNA HANDBOOK (01 JUN 1999)., Of all the variables affecting single-channel radio communications, the one factor that an operator has the most control over is the antenna. With the right antenna, an operator can change a marginal net into a reliable net. Marine Corps Reference Publication (MCRP) 6-22D, Antenna Handbook, gives operators the knowledge to properly select and employ antennas to provide the strongest possible signal at the receiving station of the circuit. MCRP 6-22D builds on the doctrinal foundation established in Marine Corps Warfighting Publication (MCWP) 6-22, Communications and Information Systems. This handbook is intended not only for CIS officers and radio operators, but for all personnel desiring information about antenna fundamentals. MCRP 6-22D supersedes Fleet Marine Force Reference Publication (FMFRP) 3-34, Field Antenna Handbook, dated 5 March 1991.
