@jmwright The math behind antennas is not hard in the sense that one must know how to solve equations. Maxwell's equations are stated in differential form because that is the most succinct way to describe moving fields. It is a language, so one can look at the math and then visualize how the electric/magnetic field is behaving.

Makerdon is a Mastodon instance focused on Makers, Open Source Hardware (OSHW) and STEM/STEAM. Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) is a likely topic as well. If you're interested in making things, allowing others to build on your work, and/or teaching others about making things, you might like this instance.
