A high gain axial-mode helical antenna with parasitic element is proposed. A metal wafer is used as parasitic element, loaded in the front of general axial-mode helical antenna to achieve the aim of improving antenna gain. The diameter of the wafer and the distance between the wafer and the end of the helical wire, which can influence the antenna characteristics, are both simulated and optimized by CST Microwave Studio®, a 3-dimentional full wave electromagnetic simulation software.
