Dipole Antennas

Meander, folded dipoles, bowties, cylindrical dipole, rhombic, and, 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.
