RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...

In the far field, Zo = 120π (377Ω)
Field Strength Calculation:
The field strength is calculated by adding the Antenna Factor and Cable Factor, and subtracting the Amplifier Gain from the measured reading. The basic equation is as follows:
FS = RA + AF + CF - AG
FS = Field Strength
RA = Receiver Amplitude
AF = Antenna Factor
CF = Cable Attenuation Factor
AG = Amplifier Gain
1 Gauss = 100 microTesla = 80 Amps/meter
