MCRP 6-22D. US Marine Corps Field Antenna Handbook. Marine Corp units operating in the field must be able to communicate to locate, close with, and destroy the enemy. Recon Marines operating behind the lines must communicate information gained back to manuever units in the attack. Now with this application, develop your skills in building field expedient antennas to improve your communication range and increase your mission success. A must for those interested in Navy SEALs, the Marines, survival, amateur radio enthusiasts, ham radio operations, or for anyone operating in remote environments. CHECK OUT THIS APP ON IPHONE/IPAD!!!

    Tilt your phone and it jumps back to cover page. Skip ahead and it overlays first page on page you want. Cant get a refund once you close it and reopen it.

    It's not bad but its really old and very basic. If you are looking for something to get you started on antennas and radio frequency theory its a good starting place.

    Had problem running on my HTC desire hd but this might have been an issue with the HTC. Can't knock the designers help.. sent me the PDF which works for me. All in all, a happy bunny.
