The best reference I've seen on the subject is Ramo, Whinnery, and Van Duzer:
Fields and Waves in Communications Electronics (Wiley, mine is 1965, but I
believe there's a later edition). I also understand that Howard Johnson's book
on Black Magic is quite good, though I haven't seen it yet. You might also see
if someone has a copy of the Radio Amateur's Handbook by the Americal Radio
Relay League (ARRL).

Have fun!
