Hey there everybody. I have a question which till date no professor has been able to answer. At least as far as I know. Its a basic antenna question. We all know that any moving charged particle generates EM waves. That is how an antenna works, when the electrons on the antenna are excited at a particular freq, they generate EM waves of that freq. That travels to a recieving antenna and induces oscillations of the electrons in THAT antenna at the same freq. My question is: How does the recieving antenna convert the oscillations of the electrons to current? There is no transfer of electrons from the transmitting antenna to the recieving one, only EM radiation. And the electrons from the antenna are not fed into the circuits which drive a radio or LEDs which light up when EM waves strike it, like the stickers you stick on your cell phones, and which light up when ever you make or recieve a call. This site might make it clear if Ive confused you http://www.dxzone.com/cgi-bin/dir/jump2.cgi?ID=7566 But it talks only about the transmitting side. My question is on the recieving side. I really appreciate it if anyone could hlpe me out. Thanks a lot.
