Most of the antennas we hams are around are large things, built from long pieces of mostly straight, conductors. However, the antenna inside your cell phone is quite different — it’s curled up on itself, winding in zigzags or spiral patterns. This is a fractal antenna : an antenna that draws inspiration from the concepts of self-similarity and space-filling to be smaller and more broadband than the old, straight, retractable antenna your old cell had. Fractal antennas aren’t terribly well-known in the amateur radio world, so let’s discover them together. We’ll talk about some properties of fractal antennas, and then I’ll share my attempts at designing them.
Important! Three board positions are up for election at the Annual Meeting. The Board is looking for people who wish to run for those slots.
