    Hey there - it looks like I'm going to be doing a bit of RF work in
    the next couple of months. This will mostly involve setting up an RF
    link between a couple RF transceivers (probably zigbee) - doing
    circuit design for said transcievers, antenna selection, board layout,
    etc. I have a bachelors in electrical engineering, but my focus was on
    small signal analog, not RF. RF is pure black magic to me.

    With that said - can anybody suggest a good book for me to start with?
    I've heard some people say the ARRL handbook is a good place to start,
    while others say that that is about the last place one should start.
    Somebody here recommended "Complete Wireless Design", which seems like
    it might be reasonable.

    Bowicks book has a few errors.

    Experimental Methods in RF Design by Hayward et al is worth getting,
    although it's mainly about HF.

    The brown cover edition. Some of them are quite serious, IIRC. I did
    see them documented somewhere, but I can't remember where. I think I
    marked a couple in my copy, I'll see if I can find it.
