Paper Abstract

A new approach for implementing electronically tunable antennas is presented in this paper. The basic concept is to vary the effective electrical length of the antenna by controlling the bias conditions of solid state switches mounted on the slot. The implemented antennas is resonating at three different frequencies spanning the range of 550 to 700 MHz with no matching networks required.
