I ran across this fascinating website while I was searching for new antenna ideas. The website created by Chavdar Levkov (LZ1AQ) is an interesting adventure into antenna experimentation.
Levkov, who has a Doctor of Science in the field of Technical Electrocardiology, is founder and CEO of a small Bulgarian company that designs and produces electrocardiology equipment. While most of Levkov's work deals with medical equipment, he has designed a variety of antennas and kits for radio amateurs.
Here's a list of his current antenna articles:

In addition to antenna articles, Levkov has produced two useful kits for radio amateurs:
An Active Antenna Amplifier Home Kit and a Variable Delay Line Kit for Wide Band Phased Arrays.
I found this site interesting, well organized, and useful for antenna experimenters.
