TOLPA (Tripod Omnidirectional Low Profile Antenna): a vertically polarized antenna with 90% bandwidth

A new vertically polarized omnidirectional antenna, inspired by an old design, has been studied, optimized, realized and measured. With a radiation pattern similar to the classical monopole on a ground plane, the proposed antenna concept provides a much larger bandwidth and a very low profile. This antenna has numerous potential applications for mobile communications, UWB and others.
