An RF transmitter is connected to a long antenna, emitting radio waves.Â A dipole antenna with a light bulb between its elements acts as the receiver.Â When the receiving antenna is parallel to the transmitter, the radio waves are absorbed, creating a current in the antenna and causing the bulb to glow.Â When perpendicular, no current is created, and the bulb does not glow.
