A Single-Feed Planar Antenna for Terrestrial DTV Reception in Mobile Communication

Progress In Electromagnetics Research C, Vol. 24, 83-96, 2011
Abstract
Japanese terrestrial broadcasting was completely converted to digital television (DTV) broadcasting on 470--710\,MHz as of July 2011. However, fading phenomenon resulting from standing waves is a factor in quality deterioration in TV and mobile communication technologies. Suppression of this is needed for many kinds of technologies. A broadband single-feed planar antenna composed of two antenna components, a Broadband Planar Monopole Antenna (B-PMA) and a Broadband Planar Slot Antenna (B-PSA), is proposed for reducing deterioration of reception due to the fading across the DTV band. Reflection coefficients and radiation patterns analyzed by the Finite Difference Time Domain (FDTD) method and compared with measured results indicate that the proposed antenna is broadband compared with a conventional antenna studied previously. A field experiment is conducted in the DTV band. The results of the field experiment indicate clearly that the proposed antenna efficiently suppresses fading resulting from standing waves across the band.
