An antenna system with polarization-reconfigurable filtering (PRF) antenna elements that can adapt to various propagation conditions is presented. The antenna system adapts to different polarization states electronically, and consequently achieves polarization-match with the incoming electromagnetic waves. Furthermore, it also has intrinsic filtering capability. By integrating filtering functions with the antenna, no additional filter circuit is required. Detailed descriptions of the antenna system are provided. The antenna system is used for practical antenna lessons depicting various propagation conditions. These lessons teach how antennas work and the importance of electromagnetic waves polarization.
