The use of fractal antenna techniques to reduce the size of a UHF linear dipole is investigated and discussed. Fractal designs are derived using an empirical method and a genetic algorithm based method. While both achieve size reduction, the latter design shows the most promise from a size reduction and design methodology standpoint. since simulation is inherent in the design process and discretely loaded designs are possible.
