Fractal Antennas

I have been convinced for some time now that the future of antennas was with the use of designs based on fractals. My searches on the Internet have always left me feeling there was something someone was not telling me. This video that appeared on Southgate ARC Newsline seems to confirm that despite my limited knowledge of the subject my suspicions were correct. I wonder how far we are away from that magical one antenna for all bands or even sleeves like that in the video to increase the bandwidth and gain of our co-linears. Watch the video and see what you think. I suspect also that the word fuzzy may appear with regard to wideband antennas in the near future too.

  1. Hi Steve, I discovered this website already years ago. But never seen the video. I think this could indeed be the future. But for a hobbyist to fabricate these things? For me it's far beyond my knowledge of antennas and more sounding like siencefiction. 73, Bas
