Abstract

The antenna is the element that collects radio energy from its surroundings and converts it into an oscillating electrical signal in the tube or wire from which it is constructed. It is one of the most critical pieces of technology for any radio receiver. Get the antenna wrong, and no matter how good the receiver is, it will not perform at its best.
