Passive frequency agile protractor antenna system. (a) |S11| values versus frequency as the capacitance across the NFRP gap varies from 1.6 pF (m1, fr = 196.9 MHz, |S11| = −32.2 dB) to −0.6 pF (m2, fr = 395.8 MHz, |S11| = −18.6 dB), and (b) the corresponding simulated resonance frequency and radiation efficiency values.
