Dipole Antenna (wire)

“Half-Wave Dipole Antenna. A dipole whose electrical length is half a wavelength and is formed by a straight metallic radiator, one-half wavelength long, whose diameter is small compared to its length, so energized that the current has two nodes, one at each end, producing maximum radiation in the plane normal to its axis. “Part I – Base Station Antennas”. ANSI/EIA/TIA-329-B-1999 Minimum Standards for Communication Antennas. Electronic Industries Association. 1999.
