Abstract : A compact multi-cone antenna is disclosed wherein a quarter wavelength cone is utilized at each slot of a slotted ring antenna. The cones are selected to be quarter wavelength in order to provide an impedance transformation for better impedance matching with free space. The individual cones are chosen to have different characteristic impedances in order to provide the antenna with a sharp disc-like radiation pattern. (Author)
