Abstract

In this paper, the design of Log Periodic Fractal Koch Antennas (LPFKA) is proposed for Ultra High Frequency (UHF) band applications. The procedure to design the LPFKA with three different numbers of iterations in order to reduce the antenna size is discussed. The Computer Simulation Technology (CST) software has been used to analyze the performances of the designed antennas such as return loss, radiation patterns, current distribution and gain. The antennas have been fabricated using FR4 laminate board with wet etching technique. Using fractal Koch technique, the size of the antenna can be reduced up to 27% when the series iteration is applied to the antennas without degrading the overall performances. Both simulated and measured results are compared, analyzed and presented in this paper.
