That thing sticking up off your car is your antenna and its catching electric power and converting that power into radio waves and back again to electrical power.
The first antenna was built in 1888 by German physicist Henrich Hertz to prove the existence of electromagnetic waves predicted by James Clerk Maxwell. It worked, he proved the waves exist and we are still using his invention today. The word “antenna” means “pole” in Italian, and the modern usage was first coined by Guglielmo Marconi in 1895.
Terms used in antenna science include:
Wilson Amplifiers offers outdoor, indoor, vehicle interior and exterior antennas, from 4 inch mini glass mounted antennas to Marine Antenna kits, with cables.
Wilson Amplifiers is an authorized Wilson Electronics distributer working out of Houston since 2011 that only carries genuine, US made, FCC approved and fully warranted Wilson equipment to US and Canadian customers.
All parts and kits are fully supplied and functional upon installation. For instance the Additional Panel Antenna Kit for DB Pro-301155-K1 includes all items required to quickly integrate the additional antenna into a single-antenna amplifier system are included in this kit.
Everything is there for a car, house, or business antenna to pick up, receive, and transmit with the appropriate amount of power and signal strength.
Hertz, Marconi, and Maxwell would be proud of what they created more than 120 years ago, as the communication age explodes once again because of their discoveries.
