Electrically small electric and magnetic dipole antennas are introduced that are based on electric and magnetic near-field resonant parasitic (NFRP) elements that are electrically coupled to the driven element. By properly combining these two NFRP antenna types, electrically small Huygens sources are realized. The proposed Huygens sources have one feed point, are well matched to 50 Ω, and have high radiation efficiencies. Their predicted directivity patterns approach the known Huygens source theoretical limit.
