Abstract:

The design of an UHF external blade antenna for high speed aircraft is described. The design is a variation of the L band external blade antenna developed previously. The antenna is a new type that is all-metal above the surface on which it mounts. It is conductively connected to the surface by a metal bar that also provides structural support for the blade. RF performance of the first developmental model is described by measured radiation patterns made on flat metallic ground planes. The planned application of the new design in combination UHF and L band antennas, and in special UHF antennas, is described. Author
