Abstract : The patent describes a broadband antenna array comprising a plurality of like monopoles disposed vertically in either a triangular or quandrangular configuration wherein a monopole is provided at each apex. A coaxial feed point is provided at the center of the intersection of the diagonals of the particular configuration. By closely spacing the monopoles with respect to each other, omnidirectional patterns are achieved; and driving the monopoles in phase reduces by a ratio of a third the real and imaginary components of the system.
