Electrically small antennas have been an important part of communications engineering since the beginning. Whether they are small compared to the extremely long wave- lengths used at the low-est radio frequencies, or intended to save space in GHz-range wireless devices, the basic principles are the same. This tutorial will review those principles, with primary atten-tion to describing the performance tradeoffs of small size.
