Subtopics

Antenna

  • Polarization: Please do not use this term in your topic list, because there is no single article for it. Please substitute a more precise term. See Polarization (disambiguation) for a list of available, more precise, topics. Please add a new usage if needed.
  • Developing Article Wavelength: For a repeating phenomenon such as a radio signal with a given frequency, the wavelength is the length, in meters, of a single repetition [e]
  • Dipole: Add brief definition or description
  • Developing Article Chaff (electronic warfare): A passive, disposable radar countermeasure using strips of metal foil or aluminized plastic, cut to match the wavelength of the expected radar, and used to send false reflections back to the radar receiver [e]
