P01.06 Rabbit TV antenna (25.36) A television is tuned to a station broadcasting at a frequency of 6.70E+7 Hz. For best reception, the rabbit-ear antenna used by the TV should be adjusted to have a tip-to-tip length equal to half a wavelength of the broadcast signal. Calculate the optimum length of the antenna. Picture of the problem: To obtain optimal reception of a 66.0-MHz TV signal, the length of the antenna should be equal to half a wavelength.
