Hertz Antenna

A half-wave antenna that is installed some distance above ground and positioned either vertically or horizontally.

This approaches an ideal source of electromagnetic radiation emitted in the form of space waves. These space waves can reach the receiver either by ground-wave propagation or by reflection from the ionosphere, known as sky-wave propagation.
