Abstract

The possibility of application Clavin type radiators in combined two-frequency antenna arrays with diode switching of vibrator and slot elements is validated. The conventional Clavin elements with passive monopoles operating at the main frequency and two active monopoles operating at the alternative frequency are used as the combined array radiator. Radiation fields of combined arrays at both frequencies are analyzed. It is shown that the alternative wavelength should not exceed the main wavelength by more than 25%.
