This is a detailed presentation that may be useful to our class. It contains a good overview of different
antenna types and shows some real world examples. It also talks about antenna characteristics like radiation
pattern and gain, and it even touches on some antenna theory. The website contains a nice overview of basic
This is a lab exercise that could be performed in the communications lab. It seems to utilize equipment
that we have in our lab. The experiment covers various concepts like antenna patterns, beamwidth, and
polarization. The lab writeup is well done with good introductions and test setup descriptions. Multiple
RF courses at Wilkes could find this experiment beneficial to the students.
This website is almost like an antenna theory encyclopedia. It has a wide variety of information from basic
to more specific topics. One can get useful definitions of antenna theory terms and follow links to get more
detailed information and figures. For example, if antenna types is selected, one can read a description of
the antenna, learn some useful equations, and watch a video (in some cases) about the subject antenna.
This website talks all about Radar. One can learn about the history of Radar, characteristics of Radar,
various Radar antennas, etc. It seems like a good starting point if one has interest in learning about
Radar antennas, measurement, signal processing, etc. This website may be useful to students taking any antenna
design or communications class.
This website talks about various TV antenna types. It was interesting to read how the author thought that
a regular analog TV antenna will work fine for digital TV. It was also interesting to learn about the gain of
each antenna and how it is measured in dBi. This website shows how antenna theory is used to create real
world designs, thus it is appropriate and applicable to our class.
