Slant dipole antenna

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 polarised antenna that can be used in high-power transmit applications and harsh environmental conditions. Although each dipole is linearly polarised, an omnidirectional circularly polarised 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 polarisation is required, and can be used in linear arrays to achieve a narrow-beam doughnut radiation pattern.
