Imagine a simple 5 wire 2m Ground Plane antenna in free-space where the four resonant radials are horizontal. Wouldn't you expect that the maximum radiation would be a few (maybe 30) degrees above the plane of the radials, kind of like a 1/4λ monopole against a real ground. Fourier Transform Techniques.

In discussions of principal plane patterns or even antenna patterns, you will frequently encounter the terms azimuth plane pattern and elevation plane term azimuth is commonly found in reference to "the horizon" or "the horizontal" whereas the term elevation commonly refers to "the vertical". When used to describe antenna patterns, these terms assume that the antenna is mounted . Antennas on older cell phones were typically monopole antennas, with an infinite ground plane approximated by the shell (casing) of the phone. in practice, monopole antennas are used on finite-sized ground planes. This affects the properties of the monopole antennas.
Figure 3 Table of 1/4 λ Ground Plan element dimensions for various amateur radio bands.. Construction. The Guanella current balun is the convenient central hub of the wire ground plane antenna and while the balun was never designed with this antenna configuration in mind it works fairly well. Ideally the two binding post would be better suited with one at the top and the other at the. These antennas usually work better if they have an RF ground "plane." In the case of an end fed vertical antenna the RF ground "plane" is a number of radial wires stretched out from the base of the antenna. Since the end fed wire is in the air it still can benefit from an RF ground "plane" underneath the antenna.

The earth ground below the antenna, a conducting surface a least λ/4 in radius or a pattern of λ/4 conductors called radials, makes up the other half of the antenna (Fig. Ground plane.

They are often convenient and easy to use. However when it is not possible to ground mount an antenna because of ground conditions or it is necessary to elevate the antenna, another solution is to use a ground plane.

Comparison of two artificial ground planes We start with analyzing a complex artificial ground plane, which will be subsequently used in surface wave antenna designs.
Figure shows two artificial surfaces: a mushroom-like EBG surface and a grounded dielectric slab loaded with periodic patches.
The idea is simple enough — hang a wire vertical from a support, using two elevated but sloped radials to form a basic "ground plane" antenna. Since the radials are elevated, the ground losses are minimized, even though there are only two of them. This kind of antenna is fed by a coaxial probe which is connected to the top hat through the ground plane and the dielectric substrate.
The ground wire acts as a short-circuit to the capacitance of the antenna constituted by the top hat above the ground plane and allows achieving a new low-frequency parallel resonance. A monopole antenna is one half of a dipole antenna, almost always mounted above some sort of ground plane.
The case of a monopole antenna of length L mounted above an infinite ground plane is shown in Figure 1(a). Figure 1. Monopole above a PEC (a), and the equivalent source in free space (b).
Using image theory, the fields above the ground plane can be found by using the equivalent source. wire around a central axis. One can easily see that the sense of One may also ask how a finite ground plane affects helix It was found that the geometry of both the antenna and the ground.
An example on the use of the finite-difference time domain method to predict the performance of a strip loop placed upon a handheld transceiver case appears in Figure The geometry of the receiver and antenna system are shown in the figure.
It is observed that at lower frequencies, the impedance changes rapidly with frequency; a difficult feat of broadband performance is needed. Abstract: The finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) method is used to model and predict the radiation patterns of wire and aperture antennas of three basic configurations.
A critical step in each is the modeling of the feed. Alternate suggestions are made and some are implemented. The first antenna is a quarter-wavelength monopole and the second is a waveguide aperture antenna.
The performance of the small antenna on small finite ground planes is considered with a particular emphasis on how the antenna's location on the ground plane affects impedance, pattern and polarization properties.
The lecture concludes with a discussion on recent advances made in the design of low profile, conformal and integrated device antennas. Adding one resonant radial ( feet long, centered on the antenna) in the axis of the loop at 1 foot above ground, the gain at 10 degrees improves to within dB of perfect soil.
That is, more than 8dB gain by adding one wire. If this can be verified by measurement, loop performance for DX can be dramatically improved by merely adding one. 13 Antennas for Shortwave Reception 14 Large Wire Loop Antennas 15 Small Loop Receiving Antennas 16 Small Transmitting Loop Antennas 17 Antenna Modeling Software 18 VHF/UHF Transmitting and Receiving Antennas 19 Microwave Waveguides and Antennas 20 Antenna Noise Temperature 21 Antennas for Radio Astronomy 22 Adjusting, Installing, and.
Wire dipole antennas are the oldest, simplest, and also one of the cheapest antenna configurations. In addition, the half-wavelength dipole antenna is perhaps also the most widely used for low-gain applications.
Detailed studies on the radiation characteristics of dipole antennas are available in the literature [7,8]. The ease with which they are designed and analyzed makes them a suitable. CB Wilson Firestik Francis Astatic Cb Radio Antenna Ground plane 3/8 x 24 Black Tip Mirror Trucker.

A fundamental challenge in low profile wire antenna design is the coupling effect of a nearby ground plane. To illustrate this effect, let s examine the performance of a simple dipole antenna near three different ground planes, namely, perfect electric conductor (PEC), perfect magnetic conductor (PMC), and electromagnetic band gap (EBG) ground.
Ground plane: Many vertical antennas employ what is called a ground plane. This is a simulated ground made from a sheet of conductor which typically extends out to a quarter wavelength from the antenna.
Often the conductor is simulated by a number of radials, often a quarter wavelength longRead more about the antenna ground plane. KEYWORDS: Finite, Ground Plane, Infinite, Microstrip antenna. I. INTRODUCTION Microstrip patch antenna has many advantages like low cost, compact size, simple structure and compatibility with integrated circuitry.
