Abstract

Both 300 MHz and 570 MHz versions of the electrically small coaxially-fed Z antenna were designed and tested. These two cases demonstrate the ability to change the resonance frequency of the Z antenna by changing the value of its lumped element inductor. The numerically predicted and the measured results are in good agreement.
