I have constructed a half-wave dipole antenna for the 433MHz frequency.
I'm using the antenna to receive in a simple setup, where I measure the output power of a transmitter.
Everywhere I read about the antenna is stated that the impedance is about 75 ohms, so if the antenna was used to transmit, I can be seen as a 75 ohms load, and therefore is simple to match. Ok, I got this...
But I cannot find how to match the antenna, when using it as a receiver?
Is it just a source with 75 ohms output impedance, or is a dipole not good for receiving?
