RF Ground and Ground Planes – Ham Radio Q and A Episode 4
Today we talk about the RF ground, what it is and when it’s necessary. The purpose of the RF ground is to act as a reflector. It doesn’t radiate RF energy, but instead interacts with the antenna’s radiating elements by mirroring and reflecting that energy, creating a predictable RF radiation pattern. So the RF ground is important, right. Then why doesn’t every antenna require one? Well they do, but just not in a way that might seem obvious. Continue watching for more.
