Same as CENTER-FEED METHOD.
The ratio of maximum to minimum current along a
wave ratio (ISWR)
One complete alternation of a sine wave that has a

Reduction of energy by absorption.
(1) The compactness of a substance. (2) Mass per unit
The device that responds to a wave or disturbance.
The heating of an insulating material by placing it in a
The losses resulting from the heating effect on the
dielectric material between conductors.
The bending of the paths of waves when the waves meet
some form of obstruction.
The scattering of reflected light waves (beams) from an
object, such as white paper.
A common type of half-wave antenna made from a
straight piece of wire cut in half. Each half operates at a
direct current (DC)
An electric current that flows in one direction.
The parasitic element of an array that reinforces energy
coming from the driver toward itself.
The property of an array that causes more radiation to
take place in certain directions than in others.
The refraction of light waves that causes the different
frequencies to bend at slightly different angles.
