Antennas 101 - Polarization, Diversity & Gain Patterns

posted Dec 20, 2011, 7:26 AM by R. Scott Page
I know there are a number of folks from the club interested in "First Person View" (FPV) flight.   Even turnkey FPV platforms need a pretty thorough understanding of a number of technologies in order to have long term success.  This video give an excellent overview of antenna basics and terminology and principles for successful RF transmission and reception.

Antennas 101 - Polarization, Diversity & Gain Patterns from Andy Lawson - on Vimeo.

Here's a video Andy Lawson did to illustrate some of the fundamentals of Antenna configs, looking at gain, patterns, diversity setups and polarization principles.

This is NOT an MIT tutorial or whitepaper, it is simply a video that was produced to help non-technical people to understand and visualise some of the princples of some of the antenna configs we use for FPV.
