At what point is it an antenna?
Posted on October 23, 2012
I know I’m the annoying new guy to part15.us, but I have a probably stupid question…If I’m winding a piece of PVC with wire to make a loading “coil” for my Part 15 AM station, and I have 200 feet of wire on there, but it is only 3.5 feet “high” is it “legal” or do I even add it in to the “height” or is it just a loading coil? I’m really confused on EXACTLY what constitutes an antenna and a “coil.” As usual, any help would be GREATLY appreciated…
880? AM (soon)
