1. A communication device, comprising:

  • a dielectric antenna including a feed point, the dielectric antenna for radiating a wireless signal from the dielectric antenna in response to electromagnetic waves received at the feed point, wherein the dielectric antenna has substantially or entirely no conductive external surfaces;

    a cable comprising a dielectric core covered by a shell, the dielectric core coupled to the feed point of the dielectric antenna; and

    a transmitter, coupled to the cable, the transmitter facilitating a transmission of the electromagnetic waves, the electromagnetic waves guided by the dielectric core to the feed point of the dielectric antenna.
