Performance Characteristics of a Vee Antenna for Short Haul Communication
Pages : 882-884
The Vee antenna is a directional antenna with a slightly higher gain as compared to dipole antenna.Here the performance of a Vee antenna is analysed operating at a frequency of 235 Mhz.The length and the angle beteen the two arms is determined accordingly and the results shows a return loss of -17.4 dB at resonant frequency.The VSWR is constant over a broad range of frequencies.The radiation pattern shows its directional properties as well as a considerable gain in the backlobe like an omni directional antenna. The Gain at its best is 20 dBuV. The antenna can be effectively used for short range communication.
