Antique Radio Transmitter (Polarized)

This experiment uses an antique broad-band radio transmitter with a copper antenna and a recieving copper antenna with a light bulb attached. The transmitted EM waves are polarized and provide enough power to the recieving antenna to light up the light bulb. If the recieving antenna is twisted off axis then the bulb will not light up. This device operates as a very basic RLC circuit that contains a mica capacitor underneath and power amplifying tubes. It's frequency is quite broad-band but centers around ~80 and 160MHz with 160 having the highest output. WUFT Channel 5's return monitoring signal was often interfered with by this device.
