Forum: Questions Related to Antenna Theory   Posted: Tue Jun 19, 2018 12:11 am   Subject: Grid Antenna Maximum Wire Separation
Do you have a picture?

If you are using a wire mesh reflector at 5.8GHz, then the same reflector should be fine for all lower frequencies (since the separation in wavelengths will be less).

Typically that means the antenna radiates efficiency at that frequency. So most of the power delivered to the antenna is radiated away instead of reflected or absorbed.

Antenna impedance usually h ...

Forum: Questions Related to Antenna Theory   Posted: Thu May 10, 2018 11:27 pm   Subject: Need magnetic loop antenna theory references.
What specifically are you looking for?

Magnetic dipoles are typically loop antenna that are much smaller than a wavelength. They are inefficient and horizontally polarized. Basically their fields ...

See Antenna Temperature:

The noise is receives is proportional to the temperature the antennas "sees". So if deep space, use ~4K

If your antenna has VSWR of 1.4, then yes, 97.2% is delivered to the antenna.

The target length for a very thin wifi dipole antenna is about 0.49lambda, or 61mm. This means each arm is about 30mm. Two things reduce the correct length:

- The fatter you make the arms, the wi ...

I don't think it should matter, those antennas pointed at your garden are receive only antennas

Forum: Questions Related to Antenna Theory   Posted: Tue Mar 06, 2018 8:55 pm   Subject: antenna Q factor is low
If your Q is low, you need to find the loss or maximize inductance

tightly couple your loops, improves your inductance faster than the resistance goes up
if you are backed by metal, you need ferri ...

You didn't ask if it is impossible to use an array under the far field distance, you asked what conditions are required such that the far field approximations are accurate

The entire array. If you have a large array and aren't far away relative to the size of the array then the angle of arrival for each antenna will be different, so you can't use the traditional beamst ...

Yes, you found the antenna. Looks to me to be a modified pifa antenna, a bit different than an IFA, but they are somewhat similar anyway: http://www.antenna-theory.com/antennas/patches/pifa.php

Makes no sense. Measure the antenna with a single port and you can get the impedance directly.

First question: Why are there 2 ports in your measurement? Antenna is a 1 port device.

Yeah that is a PIFA antenna [http://www.antenna-theory.com/antennas/patches/pifa.php]

Basically, the lowest frequency of operation is about a quarter wavelength for the length of the arm. The arm ...

That does look like an IFA or PIFA antenna, modified for some reason (additional bandwidth? lower operating frequency?) From the size, I'd estimate somewhere in the 75-300Mhz region.
