Abstract/Description: The focus of this project is to provide a survey of antennas used in wireless communication systems. This survey includes background information on wireless communication systems, antenna fundamentals and matching techniques. The design of a matching network system used for antennas such as multiband wire antenna will also be considered. For efficient transfer of energy, the matching network is designed to match the impedance of the radio to that of the transmission line terminated to the load (or antenna) in such a way that it provides the lowest VSWR(voltage standing-wave ratio) over the operating band. Finally, results will be presented for the matched multiband wire antenna.
