Horizontal Antennas above Real Ground
- Antennas are influenced by the effect of the ground
and by the type of conductors from which they are constructed. Effects of various types of ground
s on a 1.825 MHz horizontal 0.5 wave dipole
- In order to resonate at a particular frequency, an antenna needs to be at least one half wave length long. Antennas below a 1/2 wave are dependent on a ground
system for resonance as well.
