antenna effect

[an′ten·ə i′fekt]
(electromagnetism)
A distortion of the directional properties of a loop antenna caused by an input to the direction-finding receiver which is generated between the loop and ground, in contrast to that which is generated between the two terminals of the loop. Also known as electrostatic error; vertical component effect.
