hopperedA hopper is a pyramid-shaped, hollow vessel used in moving materials. When a crystal is 'hoppered,' it forms with its edges intact, like the metal body of the hopper, but is hollow inside because it forms too rapidly or there is not enough material to fill in. Thus it is made like a hopper, or "hoppered."added by anonymous

quaggiA Quagi antenna is a variation on the venerable Uda-Yagi, which dates back 1926. A Quagi antenna uses the same strategy as a Uda-Yagi, using a refltector, a driven element, and then a number of director elements. However, a Quagi constructs the reflector and the driven elements as "quads" rather than as linear elements. In a Quagi the first two elements of the antenna are quads, the directors are all simple straight wire elements, as in the traditional Uda-Yagi design. The name Quagi is a simple contraction of Quad-Yagi. There is a "Quad" class of antennas. They come in single elements, and as arrays. A Quad antenna is typically a single wire formed into a square. The dimensions of the square are adjusted so that the antennas resonates at the intended frequency of operation. Note that both the Quad and the Uda-Yagi antennas are resonant antennas. If one tries to use them outside of their design frequency limits, results will be poor at best. During transmission the reflected power from the antenna may well cause radio damage.added by anonymous
