Development of Printed-on Quarter Glass TV Antenna
This paper describes the development of printed-on quarter glass TV antenna using the improved simulation method. This method was based on the Wire-Grid Moment Method and have been newly improved to analyze the characteristics of printed-on glass antenna with making experimental and theoretical studies on the following RF characteristics of vehicular sheet glasses; (1) Relative dielectric constant, (2) Transmissivity, (3) Wave length reduction. Using this new method, the numerical solution of basic printed-on quarter glass TV antenna characteristics was closely agreed with measurement results. So that this new method has been put to useful one in analyzing and constructing the design concept of the newly developed printed-on glass TV antenna.
