PIRA 5N10.60 - Transmission Line and Antennas: Radiation from a Dipole
Instructions / Notes:
- A dipole antenna receives and detects radiation from a
Demo is plugged into a power strip on one of the table legs - which serves as an on/off switch.
- A GE #40, 6.3V, .15A screw mount flashlight bulb connected to the dipole antenna is the detector.

- The apparatus is a museum piece - which means - there is no replacement available. So, be careful with it.
- Demo Staff: The dipole receiver's antennae each need to be 87 cm long before installing them into the bulb apparatus.
Caution!: High voltages and uninsulated conductors.
Do not touch the transmitter. Turn off the power immediately after use.
