Slant Dipole Antenna | Antenna Magus

Image of the Slant dipole antenna.

The Shunt-fed Slanted V-dipole pair implemented in Antenna Magus consists of two V-dipoles separated 0.25 λ, supported by a horizontal mast. This configuration provides a very mechanically robust, simple, low cost circularly polarized antenna that can be used in high-power transmit applications and harsh environmental conditions. Although each dipole is linearly polarized, an omnidirectional circularly polarized pattern is obtained by adjusting the slant angles and diameter of the dipoles'. These antennas are typically used for FM and TV broadcasting where circular polarization is required, and can be used in linear arrays to achieve a narrow-beam doughnut radiation pattern.

Typical LHC and RHC gain patterns at the center frequency.
