A small-size spiral conical antenna for satellite telecommunication systems

V. V. Ovsyanikov, A. V. Kryukov, Vl. V. Ovsyanikov


A new method for calculation of spiral antennas with directed radiation pattern and small overall dimensions is developed. A technique of optimization of the absorbing load in the antenna base is investigated, permitting to vary the level of antenna backward radiation and simultaneously to assess the active loss in this load.
