Abstract: Here an hexagonal printed antenna is reported. The antenna has measurement volume of 800 mm3. It operates at the frequencies 2.9 GHz, and 6.3 GHz with S11 of -10.17 dB and -14.49dB respectively. It has produced acceptable gain of 2.065dB for 2.9 GHz and 3.45dB for 6.3 GHz. The frequencies obtained are useful for aeronautical radio location and satellite applications. The antenna is designed using HFSS software and tested using ZVH vector network analyzer.
Keywords: Dual band, radio location, HFSS, VNA.
Scope of the Article: Microstrip antenna
