Purpose:Demonstrates transmission of energy in electromagnetic waves. Shows the radiation pattern of the dipole antenna
Description:This simple radio transmitter sends a signal to a handheld dipole antenna connected to a light bulb.
The receiving antenna can be moved around in space, keeping the two antennas parallel, to observe the dipole radiation pattern. Rotating the receiving antenna to a vertical orientation shows that the radiowaves are polarized, as seen by the light going out.
