Updated Patch antenna page with some of my thesis documentation
hope I didn't step on anyones toes
Hello, I'm new in Wikipedia. I want to help as I could. I'm finishing the carrier of Electronical Engineering at Mendoza, Argentina. I'm working with Microstrip Antenna Technology. So While I'm learning I could help with any new idea I have about this topic. The only thing is that I'm not sure of what to do. I can help in Spanish (my natural tongue) and Italian or English. Well, hope that this can be of any help for you.
I added a reference and can't seem to get it to appear below.
help me ....
could be anyone to help me in order to know deeper about analysis of microstrip single-element??? i mean, a patch that is rectangular/square in shaped. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 21:01, 18 September 2007 (UTC)
Merge this page with Patch antenna?
This page, and Patch antenna cover largely the same ground. As both are quite short, wouldn't it make sense to concentrate the information in a single page? Patch antennas are by far the most common form, but microstrip antenna is more general - so I'm open to suggestions as to which page should be merged into which. Either way, I think one should ultimately redirect to the other. GyroMagician (talk) 13:58, 7 January 2012 (UTC)
- I agree with the merger. It looks to me from the sources that, as you say, Microstrip antenna is the more general term; a patch antenna is an individual element while a microstrip antenna can include an array of patches. So I would think that Patch antenna should be merged here. --ChetvornoTALK 16:10, 8 March 2012 (UTC)
Please do not make comments as such if you are not truly highly informed. I am into manufacture and design of antennas, and I can say two things: microstrip and patch are NOT the same thing, nor is one subset of another. Both articles have and can expand a lot, because there is a lot to say about both types. There are microstrip antennas that are not built of patch antennas, and there are patch antennas that are not microstrip as well. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Spiralciric (talk • contribs) 00:50, 2 April 2012 (UTC)
- Please read my suggestion again. I asked for opinion, because as the pages currently stand, they largely say the same thing. If you would like to add to either or both pages, to expand the information, that would be helpful. GyroMagician (talk) 16:52, 3 April 2012 (UTC)
I found the terms 'patch antenna', 'microstrip antenna' and 'microstrip patch antenna' used interchangeably in literatures. So I agree with merging.
- Microstrip is just a type of transmission line. Anything usable on this page should be copied to patch antenna and this page should be redirected. Readro (talk) 18:19, 31 December 2012 (UTC)
- oppose I disagree with merger as it is better to have different articles that are much more targeted. That will help our readers more find what they were looking for rather than wading though heaps of text. Examples, application and theory details will be different. Splitting articles is what helps Wikipedia grow and become better. Graeme Bartlett (talk) 21:56, 11 January 2013 (UTC)
Clarification needed - Fig 4
The clarification needed note under the 'Other types' section is about the 'The PIFA is shown from a side view in Figure 4.' statement. This statement is a copy-paste from the fifth reference (antenna-theory), along with the preceding sentences. It seems that it should be reworded (possibly with an image from that site so that the reference to the figure makes more sense). 22.214.171.124 (talk) 19:40, 23 January 2014 (UTC)
