How Does an Antenna Work Index
There are many theories as to how an antenna works, some of which are amazingly complicated and difficult to understand, some are totally inaccurate and some are so weird that they are amusing. It does not help to refer to the antenna text books that are full of very advanced mathematics and difficult to comprehend concepts which the average person would not even attempt to understand. In order to investigate the reality of radiation a series of measurements and articles have been made to prove the fundamental radiation mechanism. These articles build up to give an overall picture as to the real behaviour of a grounded monopole antenna and are intended to be a reference point for those who wish to understand how an antenna really transmits.
