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.

Dear sos,

EngNet Co., the owner of http://www.imodelit.com, can offer you the required design. There are more than 270 models for different microwave, electrical, and optical components models, where 74 ones are for various antenna elements and arrays.

Check antenna library at: http://www.imodelit.com/ViewProducts.aspx?CID=92

Also, currently they are developing a new EM package Generic ElectroMagnetic Modeler (GEMM) that employs the Method of Moment (MoM). You can view videos of this product at

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...
