Phased Array SimulatoVery Small FM Antennas???? - RF Cafe Forums

RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2010 mainly due to other social media platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe Forums activity dropped off precipitously. Regardless, there are still lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at. Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

NOTICE: The original RF Cafe Forum is available again for reading, and the new RF Cafe Blog is an active board.

Hi,

Does anyone knows any companies specializing in designing very small broadband VHF antennas (couple of cm) with gains higher than -20 dBi, Omni pattern and matched over a band of 169 to 218 MHz (VSWR 2:1)? Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

SS

Hi sos,

A book named Small Antennas may be helpful for your design. It was written by K. Fujumoto and published by Reserach Studies Press in 1988. You may look it from the library.

Hi Feng,

Thanks for your reply. I will look into that book for design ideas, but I wanted to check if there was anything aleady available. Please let me know if you are aware of any companies making these type of antennas.

Thanks

Hi sos,

There is the company dedicates to small antennas and its website is http://www.antenova.com/. However, there isn't an antenna in the band you required. I think this kind of antenna, which has special requirements, may need to custom design.

By the way, its omni pattern is at all directions or just in a plane? There is a big difference between them.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
