Enter the frequency to be used by the antenna into the calculator to determine the total length of the dipole and length of each side.

## Dipole Antenna Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the dipole antenna length.

L = 468 / f

- Where L is the length (feet)
- f is the frequency in MHz

## Dipole Antenna Definition

A dipole antenna is an antenna with two equal length elements on each side.

## Dipole Antenna Example

How to calculate a dipole antenna length

**First, determine the frequency to be used.**Determine the frequency in MHz.

**Calculate the total length**Calculate the total length of the dipole using the formula above.

**Calculate the length of each element**Divide the value from step 2 by 2 to calculate the length of each side.

## FAQ
