Chameleon Antennas, where you can blog, shop, and catch up on the never ending pursuit of defining whether a Chameleon has antenna or antennae.
A) In radio an antenna is the interface between radio waves propagating through space and electric currents moving in metal conductors, used with a transmitter or receiver.
B) One of a pair of long, slender, segmented appendages on the heads of insects, centipedes, millipedes, and crustaceans are antennae. Most antennae are organs of touch, but some are sensitive to odors and other stimuli.
We hope this discussion peaked your interest in Chameleon Antennas products, and as for the source of confusion between antenna or antennae, it were the Greeks: In consideration that an antenna is a device that sends radio and television signals. The singular noun antenna is just one of the feelers on a bug’s head — a sensory wand the insect waves around to check out its surroundings. The plural of this antenna is antennae. (Those Greeks and their funny words!)
So, whatever your preference, just remember that antennas are for sending and receiving electromagnetic signals and antennae are flexible sensory appendages. Come on by our shop for a cup of coffee with a light-hearted conversation, and pickup something today from Chameleon Antennas.
