Abstract

This project investigates a novel technique for wideband impedance matching of short blade monopoles in the VHF-UHF bands using a simple network of five discrete components. This network is of one fixed topology consisting of an inductive L-section cascaded with a high-pass T-section and is effectively used with monopoles of differing shapes and matching bandwidths. A matching network of minimal complexity (and loss) such as this, is desirable for its practical realization and straightforward design.
