 Posted: Fri May 29, 2015 7:19 pm    Post subject: 3 band UWB antenna Hi all! Can somebody help me? I have got an asigment at college to design in HFSS UWB antenna that covers 3 bandwidths: 450MHz - 830 MHz 800 MHz - 970 MHz 1800 MHz - 1900 MHz. Can anybody help me or point me in the right way? I'm new at this and don't know anything about it... All i can find is antenna that covers 1 bandwidth. Thank you!
