What Is a Dipole Antenna?

Answer

A dipole antenna refers to a radio antenna that can be made using a simple wire with a center-fed driven element. It's made up of two metal conductors of rod or wire, oriented parallel and in line with each other, with a small space between them. The frequency voltage of the radio is applied to the antenna at the center, between the two conductors. These dipole antennas are the simplest practical antennas from a theoretical point of view.
