Microstrip Array Antenna with 16 Patches for UHF Band Television Signal Reception

Yulindon Yulindon, Firdaus Firdaus, Hendrick Hendrick

Abstract

There are 2 commonly known equipment for the reception of television broadcasts i.e. using a parabolic antenna connected to satellite receiver and a wire or pipe antenna that directly connected to the television receiver. Receiving the signal by means of a parabolic antenna is more expensive because it requires additional tools , namely satellite receivers, so generally the people like to choose the easier way by direct receiving the signal using wire antenna. The antenna construction which made of aluminum pipes has a weakness easily bent or broken on the assembling phase as well as when there are high winds causing the antenna mast collapsed, confirmed that the antenna is bent, loose or broken elements. The paper relates to a microstrip antenna for reception of television signals using material printed circuit boards or printed circuit board (PCB) which is a thin but strong in the form of a number of patches array separated in a certain distance.
