This paper describes the principle of using a single antenna with a parasitic element or elements to give radiation pattern diversity on a vehicle. The parasitic elements are loaded by switched reactive or open/short circuits. Automobiles currently use up to 4 active antennas to give diversity. Simulations are in close agreement with measurements on a scaled vehicle. Measurements on real cars confirm the potential of the technique.
