An antenna (or aerial) is an electrical device which converts electric power into radio waves, and vice versa. It is usually used with a radio transmitter or radio receiver. In transmission, a radio transmitter supplies an oscillating radio frequency electric current to the antenna's terminals, and the antenna radiates the energy from the current as electromagnetic waves (radio waves). In reception, an antenna intercepts some of the power of an electromagnetic wave in order to produce a tiny voltage at its terminals, that is applied to a receiver to be amplified.
A parabolic antenna was present at Da Wialo Kallai's largest building, which Ocelot noticed alongside Venom Snake, and deduced by its presence that any intel files regarding the whereabouts of the then-recently detained Kazuhira Miller were most likely within the building.

During the Outer Heaven Uprising in 1995, Solid Snake was forced to procure a specific antenna, in order to bypass radio jamming that had been set up in Building 2 of the enemy fortress. Shortly after acquiring it, Snake was contacted by his commanding officer, Big Boss, who had managed to get through to him.
