The paper is devoted to investigation of ultra-wideband logarithmically periodic vibrators of mirror antennas. The vibrators have the form of cophasal antenna arrays consisting of two log-periodic dipole radiators, comprising a pyramid arranged in the H-plane. The asymmetric and symmetric types of excitation of these dipoles are considered, with their calculated and measured characteristics included.
