antenna gain

[an′ten·ə ‚gān]
A measure of the effectiveness of a directional antenna as compared to a standard nondirectional antenna. Also known as gain.

Antenna Gain


a dimensionless quantity that is equal to the product of the directivity and the radiation efficiency of a transmitting or receiving antenna (see). [27–286–1 ]
