Abstract

In this paper it is shown that creeeping waves cause for transmission around the human body using a Metallic Button Antenna. This study indicates that the human body can actually enhance received power over that of free space. A small, unobtrusive, dual-band antenna is used in the measurement and characterisation of On-body communication channels. Measurements are performed on a human subject and a free space phantom model with the effects of the body on the communication channel being discussed.
