Therefore, this antenna is well suited for long-distance
communications in the HF band.
INVERTED CONE ANTENNA
The inverted cone antenna (figure 2-33) is
vertically polarized, omnidirectional, and very
broadbanded. It is used for HF communications in ship-
to-shore, broadcast, and ground-to-air applications.
The radial ground plane that forms the ground system
for inverted cones is typical of the requirement for
vertically polarized, ground-mounted antennas. The
radial wires are one-quarter-wavelength long at the
lowest designed frequency.

The log-periodic (LP) antenna operates over an
extremely wide frequency range in the HF and VHF
