## Main Question or Discussion Point

Hi all,

I'm implementing ray tracing ..

If we say that an antenna is linearly vertically polarized, does that mean that the direction of E field emitted from the antenna is vertical with respect to the coordinates of the antenna or vertical with respect to each ray's coordinates?

For example, if a ray is emitted at an elevation angle 45 an azimuth angle 45. If we assume that the E field is vertical with respect to eh antenna coordinates, then it won't be orthogonal to the direction of propagation of that ray right?
