Abstract-- This paper reports on an investigation of
spherical, disc, and half-disc antennas in the frequency
and time domains with the objective of developing small
planar versions of the antennas. These antennas have an
omni-directional impulse response in azimuth and a pulse
duration of 0.5 ­ 0.65 nanoseconds. In addition, the
measured data show a reasonable peak received signal in
a pulse communication link using two identical antennas.
