Abstract: This letter presents a novel antenna that physically resembles the ear of a bat. The device consists of a circular ground plane with a central monopole element. An equilateral triangular conducting plate is curved around the ground so that the base of the triangle is electrically connected to the perimeter of the circle and is of the same length. The input characteristic is similar to the monopole above ground, providing there are a sufficient number of modes in the triangular plate at the frequency of interest. Certain frequencies yield a high gain and a radiation pattern with low side lobes.
