The patent application (Publication Number: US20240036144A1) describes a direction-finding antenna comprising a substrate with a reflecting ring formed by connecting side wires and radiating elements located on the outside of the side wires. The reflecting ring is a closed polygon, with the length of each side wire being identical, forming a closed regular polygon. The radiating elements are dipole antennas with specific configurations, including main sections, side sections, and extending sections, all designed to optimize direction-finding capabilities.

Furthermore, the patent application also details a direction-finding antenna with multiple antenna structures facing different directions, each consisting of a reflector and a radiating element. The reflectors are connected to form a closed polygon, with the radiating elements positioned on the outside of the reflectors. Similar to the previous design, the reflectors form a closed regular polygon, with the radiating elements being dipole antennas with specific configurations for optimal performance. These antenna structures are designed to enhance direction-finding capabilities by utilizing the unique configurations of the reflectors and radiating elements.
