rhombic antenna
A directional antenna that is composed of long-wire radiators that form the sides of a rhombus, the two halves of which are fed equally in opposite phase at one apex. [From Weik '89] Note: A rhombic antenna is usually terminated at the apex opposite the driven apex, which termination makes its radiation pattern unidirectional. It is bidirectional if the opposite apex is unterminated.
