A Longitudinally Compact Yagi–Uda Antenna With a Parasitic Interdigital Strip

A Yagi–Uda antenna with a parasitic interdigital strip is proposed for a compact design. The parasitic strip is positioned between a driven dipole element and a reflecting element to compensate for the phase change, while high gain and good impedance matching is achieved for the proposed antenna with significant longitudinal reduction. The experimental… CONTINUE READING
