Dual-Band Yagi-Uda Antenna for Wireless Communications
By
Progress In Electromagnetics Research Letters, Vol. 16, 119-129, 2010
Abstract
A novel Yagi-Uda antenna with dual-band (915-935MHz and 1760-1805MHz) is presented. Branch structures are used to realize dual-band performance. The geometrical parameters for the branch structures are optimized to explore the antenna to operate satisfactorily in the two bands. Prototype is manufactured and measured, and the results are in good agreement with the simulated ones. In the two operating bands, the proposed antenna achieves directional radiation and the performances that VSWR<2, gain 5-6.6 dBi and front-to-back ratio 6-9.1dB, making it suitable for the non-fixed base station backhaul in wireless communications.
