Silly question ... An antenna is necessary to receive a transmitted signal from atmosphere, or otherwise. The transmitted signal weakens as it travels through the atmosphere. When the signal encounters an antenna (subject to antenna gain) a corresponding signal is induced in the antenna.

Is the inducing signal weakened to the extent it induces a signal in the receiving antenna?
