Antennas are one of the most important components of signal jammers, and they are the most commonly seen part by customers who come into contact with these products. The most common type of antenna is the cylindrical omnidirectional antenna. However, customers may notice that besides the differences in appearance, the antennas used in different types and purposes of signal jammers also vary. Some devices are equipped with multiple antennas of the same length, while others have antennas of slightly different lengths. This raises the question of why there is such variation.
Understanding the Structure of Omnidirectional Antennas:
When we see the antennas of signal jammers, we are actually only seeing the outer shell of the antenna. The outer shell of the antenna is hollow, and the actual functional part of the antenna is hidden inside. This functional part is the antenna core, which can be made of RF cables, copper wires, copper sheets, or other metal materials.
The Length of Antenna Cores and Resonant Frequency:
The length of the antenna core is related to its corresponding resonant frequency. According to the relationship between frequency and wavelength, there is a basic rule: the higher the frequency, the shorter the length of the antenna core, and vice versa, the lower the frequency, the longer the length of the antenna core.
Uniform Length Antennas:
Sometimes, we may see signal jammers that use antennas of the same length. In reality, these antennas are using uniform-length outer shells for aesthetic and uniformity purposes. However, each of these antennas corresponds to a specific frequency range, and careful observation will reveal clear frequency parameters marked at the end of these antennas.
Different Length Antennas in High-Power Signal Jammers:
In high-power signal jammers, the antennas used have higher requirements in terms of power handling and standing wave ratio. To avoid unnecessary waste of antenna shells, it is not mandatory to make the lengths of the antennas completely consistent. In fact, in some cases, there may even be variations in the diameters of the omnidirectional antennas used in high-power signal jammers.
Antennas are crucial components of signal jammers, and they play a significant role in the overall performance of these devices. The length of the antenna core is directly related to the resonant frequency, and different frequencies require different lengths. While some signal jammers use antennas of the same length for aesthetic purposes, others may have variations in antenna lengths to meet specific technical requirements. Understanding the structure and characteristics of antennas in signal jammers helps us appreciate the complexity and versatility of these devices.
