Investigation of dipole antenna arrays over a grid reflector

V. V. Ovsyanikov, A. S. Avramenko, R. O. Sinitskii


The paper is devoted to research in characteristics of small-size axially symmetric radial and azimuthal dipole antenna arrays placed above a small-size grid reflector. To diminish the dipole dimensions and to lower the level of backward radiation of the antenna arrays, it is suggested to use lumped inductive elements connected between the radiating arms of the dipoles.
