6 Antenna Data Radio frequency currents flowing in an antenna element creates a magnetic field around the conductor. This magnetic field radiates through space and induces a small current in any conductor it passes. The small current created in the receiving antenna of interest is processed by the radio receiver to accomplish the required task. Copyright © 2008 Wilkerson Instrument Co., Inc All rights reserved

7 Antenna Data Transmit and receive antennas’ elements must be aligned in the same direction Antenna gain is stated as gain relative to a reference antenna Reference “antenna” is a point (isotropic) source which radiates in a perfect sphere Gain is achieved by distorting the perfect sphere to radiate more in a given direction The isotropic antenna is assigned a gain of 1 Practical antennas have their gain referenced to the isotropic source.

8 Antenna Data The gain of an antenna, in a given direction, can be defined as “for a given input power, the gain of an antenna is the power radiated by the antenna divided by the power radiated by an isotropic source.” Gain is usually expressed in decibels which is expressed by Gain = 10log (power radiated by antenna) / (power radiated by isotropic source). An i indicates gain relative to an isotropic source (dBi). For a gain of 2 10log(2/1) = 10 X 0.3 = 3dBi For a gain of 10 10log(10/1) = 10 X 1 = 10dBi Antennas are perfectly reciprocal – Gain is the same for transmitting and receiving.
