Abstract : The patent describes a receiving antenna assembly for mitigating signal fading and cancellation caused by the degrading effects of multipaths and scatter in jungle, mountain or urban environments. The antenna has three mutually-perpendicular, multi-polarization ferrite loopsticks for sensing H field signal energy and a whip antenna for sensing E field signal energy, and selection means for choosing among the signal energies sensed by the ferrite loopsticks and the whip antenna.
