Introduction


One of the most common antenna's is the ground plane antenna which is basically a 1/4 lambda driver element and 3 or 4 reflector elements (creating a artificial ground). It's a simple antenna to build with a good bandwidth, it doesn't have any gain over a dipole because it's dipole. But it's simple and fun to experiment with.
