UHF SATCOM broadband CP antenna: moxon type bent-dipoles over a ground plane
Niver, Edip and Tekin, İbrahim (2011) UHF SATCOM broadband CP antenna: moxon type bent-dipoles over a ground plane. In: PIERS, (Accepted/In Press)
In this paper, we investigate and compare two different antenna types for UHF SATCOM applications; proposed Moxon type (bent dipole) and conventional egg beater (loop) antennas in terms of antenna performance and physical size. Bent dipole and egg beater antennas are simulated using HFSS software. Prototype antenna for Moxon type is also fabricated and measured for its return loss using Agilent network analyzer and compared to that of an egg beater antenna. Antenna gains are also simulated. Simulation results show that Moxon type antenna has more impedance bandwidth than egg beater antenna with smaller dimensions and hence can be used for broadband SATCOM applications.
