I know that dB stands for decibel. Someone has used the
abbreviation similarly for the gain of an antenna as "dBic". Would you
know the definition of this abbreviation?
I know that dbi means db (isotropic), the ratio of the gain you would get from
this antenna versus an isotropic radiator (no direction, just goes in all
spherical directions). dbc usually means db of the ratio of the signal to the
carrier strength, so if there is little information content, the ratio would
so maybe somebody put all these together?
