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 rabbitear antenna used by the TV should be adjusted to have a
tiptotip 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 66.0MHz TV signal,
the length of the antenna should be equal to half a wavelength.
