Understanding Radar Antenna Beams, Half Power Beam Width (HPBW) and First Null Beam Width (FNBW)

Everyone knows what an antenna is when they see one and many people generally understand its purpose. But beyond that the science of wireless communication is often left to IT specialists and engineers. It helps to tell yourself circular graphs aren't really that overwhelming. Here are the basics for a more technical understanding of antenna beams and how they work.
