What accompanies you on your long lonely highway rides? What keeps you updated about the traffic, weather report and news when you drive from home to the office or vice-versa? It is a typical electronic device known as Antenna. An antenna (or aerial) is a transducer which converts electromagnetic waves into electrical currents or vice-versa. The antenna can be long, wired or as bizarre as a satellite dish. Though Antenna is a long rigid metallic structure where as aerial (or a๋rial) is a stiff wire format. Antennas are used in different apparatus such as radio and television broadcasting, point-to-point radio communication, wireless LAN, radar and space exploration. Now-a-days antennas are available in the market with a bit modification as per the need of the car like power antenna, an antenna mast, a high-gain antenna etc. Irrespective of varieties available in the market, all antennas provide a full signal to your car's Amplitude Modulation (AM)/ Frequency Modulation (FM) receiver.
Different types of antenna:
- Isotropic: Isotropic radiator, helical antenna etc.
- Omni-directional: Dipole antenna, Monopole antenna, Whip antenna, Random wire antenna etc.
- Directional: Beverage antenna, Horizontal curtain, Horn, Log-periodic antenna, Phased array, parabolic antenna, Loop antenna, Regenerative loop antenna, rhombic antenna, Yagi antenna etc.
Catching all such radiocast is impossible without the Antenna. Even if you opt for a built-in radio device in your Beauty-Bliss still you need an Acura Antenna for correspondence. Acura Antenna receives the electromagnetic waves (or the radio waves) coming from the source i.e. radio station. Radio stations have a device which generates sound waves having a certain degree of electromagnetic force. Thus, electromagnetic forces persuades the electrons within your Acura antenna to start working, duplicating the signal and sending it to your radio device. The length and the material of Acura antenna is responsible for the quality of reception one receive on their Acura car radio.
Acura antennas are designed to operate in a relatively narrow frequency range to receive and transmit equally. Performance of Acura antenna is affected by several critical parameters. Such parameters like resonant frequency, impedance, gain, aperture or radiation pattern, polarization, efficiency and bandwidth can be adjusted during the design process.
Though the Acura antenna is very flexible and is meant to last the life of your Acura car still it meets many instances which may break or bent them. Installation of a new Acura antenna do not need any service boy, you can do it of your own. This way you may save your time & money very easily.
Sooner or Later in the near future everyone driving/ riding a car will enjoy hearing radio. Then why to think about it? Simply go for a good quality Acura antenna today itself.
