Dipoles are used in many radio systems. The construction of these antennas is usually done with the use of a dipole element. Dipoles are used to alter the transmit and receive strengths within a certain range. When the output signal is stronger than the input signal, then the antenna can be said to be a half wave dipole.
Antenna elements, when mounted on a transmitting tower or antenna, will produce a signal that is half the wavelength they are intended to cover. A Half Wave Dipole antenna is one that is constructed using two or more dipoles, so that it can cover a larger region of the radio band with a similar number of units. Construction. A Half Wave Dipole antenna is usually constructed with a coaxial feeder system. This type of feed system consists of a transmitting tower with a number of coaxial cables running between it and the Antenna Element. The Antenna Element is mounted on the transmitting tower, with the coaxial cables running beneath or behind it.
Antenna elements are mounted inside the enclosure of the half wave dipole antennas, so that they do not need to be outside of the free space where they will be receiving their output signal, in order to provide the required strength. In most cases, the Antenna Elements is mounted inside a cube-shaped housing. The length of the cable running between the Antenna Elements and the transmitting tower, will dictate how much power the Antenna Elements requires to cover a given area. Some Half Wave Dipole antennas require as little as 1.5 watts to operate at full capacity, while others can operate at much higher powers, if powered by a stronger transmitter.
The half wave dipole antenna is manufactured using a half-wave radio transmitter, which is much simpler than a standard half-wave antenna, because it is smaller in size. A half wave dipole antenna does not need a transmitting element that has a peak power rating that is greater than the voltage drop across the input terminal. In order for a half wave dipole antenna to function properly, it must have a fixed power source, with a minimum voltage drop across the receiving terminal. In order for the Half Wave antenna to meet the above mentioned requirements, a varying voltage requirement between the input and output terminals is required.
The half wave dipole Antenna is often used for two main reasons, either of which will give the user the desired results. For communication purposes, this type of antenna is often found in mobile devices that must retain their communications abilities when on the move, such as radios, laptop computers and handheld computers. In addition, for residential purposes, a half-wave dipole antenna can also be used as an outdoor unit in order to increase the range of an existing signal. The most important thing to remember when using an outdoor unit such as this, is to keep the transmitted signal below the 30 foot level.
