Low-profile and small capacitively fed VHF antenna


A low profile, compact antenna operating around 162MHz with omnidirectional vertically polarized radiation is proposed. The antenna is a short monopole capacitively coupled to shortend quarter-wavelength printed line optimized at 162MHz for Automatic Identification System (AIS) application. The antenna dimensions are less than λ/185 in height and λ/20 in lateral dimension, and the small size of antenna provides a narrow band of 0.34% and gain of −11.6 dBi. The simulated and measured results are in good agreement. © 2016 Electromagnetics Academy. All Rights Reserved.
