This paper provides a historical overview of ultra-
wideband antennas presenting some of the key advances
at the root of modern designs.
"Ultra-wideband" has its roots in the original "spark-gap"
transmitters that pioneered radio technology. This history
is well known and has been well documented in both
professional histories [1-2] and in popular treatments .
The development of UWB antennas has not been
subjected to similar scrutiny. As a consequence, designs
have been forgotten and then re-discovered by later
investigators. The present paper aims to fill this void by
offering a brief history of UWB antennas.
