Dipole Antennas

Meander and folded dipoles, bowties, biquad

Dipole antennas are also known as linear wire antennas. Dipoles are balanced antennas and are the most fundamental form of antennas. A standard dipole antenna has an omnidirectional radiation pattern. Dipole antennas are used in various applications such as in phased arrays and feeding sources to larger antennas.
