In this paper, the fractal concept has been used in the linear array antenna
design to obtain multiband operation. The fractal linear array antenna has been
designed at a frequency of 750 MHz with equal spacing and uniform amplitude
distribution of the elements array. 1st iteration quadratic Koch curve dipole fractal
element is used in design of the array. The proposed antenna array design, analysis
and characterization had been performed using the Method of Moment (MoM)
technique. The radiation pattern, side lobe level (SLL), directivity (D), and input
impedance of the proposed antenna are described and simulated using 4NEC2
software package and MATLAB programming language version 7.6.
