Antenna Element Catalog

A helix is a broadband antenna and used with a ground plane. This antenna is used in satellite communication devices such as telephones radio and global positioning systems (GPS).

The dipoleHelix antenna supports AI-based tuning and analysis. For more details, see design and AIAntenna documentation.
