printed circuit antennas - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

please excuse the newbie question...

I am a graduate student working on a project that requires me to design a printed circuit antenna and a circuit connected to it.

I want to know about softwares (preferably free) that can be used to design printed circuit antennas.

I came across Momentum from the Agilent EESoF but it is a bit too expensive and does not seem to have an evaluation version.

Again please excuse the newbie question.

Well, free software for printed circuit antennas...

You can use trial versions of Sonnet.com or Ansoft Serenade (Student Version).

There're also free versions of NEC (Numerical Electromagnet Code), http://www.qsl.net/wb6tpu/swindex.html which you can use together with MMANA (I believe it's a user interface, never worked with nec)

Even the good old PUFF can do it :)
