Antenna Polarization The polarization of an antenna is the polarization of the wave radiated by the antenna. At a given position, the polarization describes the orientation of the electric field. In this experiment we use the polarizer which is a device that changes the polarization of a wave to see the antenna polarization effect. Polarizers allow waves that are polarized in the orthogonal direction to the wires to pass through. First set the transmitter and receiver to a polarization angle of 0 0 , this corresponds to the

Finally, attach the polarizer to the receiver. Rotate the polarizer from 0o to 90o increments of 10o, record the receive power....
