Abstract : The invention relates to a VHF radio frequency antenna for a homing receiver suited for airborne applications and comprising a pair of right angled antenna elements of like configuration terminating in a common non-conductive joint of insulator material while their opposite ends terminate in dielectric supports mounted on an electrically conductive ground plane such as an aircraft skin. The ends of the elements terminating in the dielectric supports additionally connect to signal coupling means which feed to a homing receiver or other utilization device through equal length transmission lines.
