  • Patent number: 10790590
    Abstract: Multiple frequency agile antenna structures are described. Each of the structures allows for tuning the antenna by changing its shape geometry (without changing the overall length of the antenna) and altering the frequency characteristics using variable capacitors. This is done by allowing control of the resonant frequency of the antenna with one main tunable capacitor and for independently varying the frequency and bandwidth of the antenna structure with the use of additional tunable capacitors embedded in the antenna structure.
