Best directional antenna - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam.

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

I'm looking for what the best type of antenna is for high directivity. I'm looking to do a Tx/Rx system with very narrow line-of-sight in ISM900 MHz band, and want to minimize signal power off the beam sight line. Thanks.

a planar log spiral is not directional! A conical log-spiral is. However, it'll be broadband and circularly polarized.

If you want linear polarization, a Yagi-Uda antenna is indeed preferrable

Agree. This is what I was thinking about. Thank you.

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 typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
