The Front to Back Ratio (F/B Ratio) of an antenna is the ratio of power radiated in the front/main radiation lobe and the power radiated in the opposite direction (180 degrees from the main beam).

This ratio tells us the extent of backward radiation and is normally expressed in dB. This parameter is important in circumstances where interference or coverage in the reverse direction needs to be minimized.
