“Setting up a wireless LAN is more of an art than a science.”
Today’s WhatIs.com Word of the day is leaky feeder, a coaxial cable that has small sections of its copper shielding stripped away to allow radio frequency (RF) signals to escape. Leaky feeders, which act as extended antennas, are also called radiating cables. Leaky feeders are often used in structures with metal frameworks such as skyscrapers, tunnels, ships and planes to extend mobile coverage. Continued…
What does an antenna do?
a. converts radio-frequency fields into alternating current and vice-versa.
b. increases the voltage, current or power of a signal.
