antenna feed points?? - 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.

I was measuring atthe feed point on a printed circuit board antenna and the impedance was supposed to be seeing about 200 ohms for 2.4GHz application. But when I measured it was about 20 ohms (this is from a previous engineer here). I am new to antenna and when I measured the antenna without the feed point, it measures about 180 ohms but as stated above, the with the feed point it is 20 ohms, any insight??

I was using a agilent VNA. But I am mistated, it was not the feed point, it was a transmission line to the feed point, sorry for the confusion, I am new to some of the terminology,

Hi:

There are a lot of books out with good information on designing and testing patch (printed circuit) antennas, particularly for data communications. You can look at places like Amazon.com.

Kirt has a good list on RF Cafe where (he claims) the ones listed are 4-star rating or above. Of course, ratings can be slewed by biased reviewers, but in general they are probably pretty reliable.

You should check them out. Most are around $120, but get free shipping, and that's a small price to pay for taking the guesswork out of your effort.

Cheers!

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...
