Cameron Kirby EE 151-03 Section 1 1. The ground wire should be connected to a cold metal water pipe because when a conductive object is cold, it conducts even better. This is due to the fact that when a substance is cooled, it becomes more organized, making it easier for electrons to flow though the substance. 2. The required range of values for the variable capacitor to enable the reception of all radio stations in the AM band would have to be between 0MHz and 1MHz 3. I found that when I placed my wire as straight up and down as possible, it got the best reception. And as for length, if it is too long it is bad since there is more resistance per square inch of wire, but if the wire is too short there isn’t enough wire to get a good

Unformatted text preview: signal. Section 3 1. The antenna configuration I found most efficient was a hybrid of vertical and horizontal. I first ran my antenna up to the hanging lights, and then ran it across to the other set of hanging lights. The distance vertical and horizontal was nearly even. The signal strength was determined by the fact that the volume was greater and the stations became clearer, and the fact that I got 3 different stations. 2. One of the stations call letters were KVEC and it was at a frequency of 920kHz. Another was in Spanish, so I could not determine its call letters and also could not determine their frequency. The third I was able to get had too much noise (a.k.a. it was not clear) to determine anything they were saying....
