Abstract

Two electrically small, multifunctional Huygens dipole antennas that operate in the L-band are reviewed briefly. In both designs, two pairs of magnetic and electric near-field resonant parasitic (NFRP) elements are combined. Egyptian axe dipoles (EADs) generate the electric dipoles; capacitively loaded loops (CLLs) generate the magnetic dipoles. These NFPR elements are excited with coax-fed driven dipole elements. Both systems are low profile and radiate cardioid patterns pointed in the broadside direction. One Huygens antenna is a dual linearly polarized (dual-LP) system. The other one produces parallel, LP fields at two operating frequencies (dual-band LP).
