A new broad-band receiving antenna was realized using a resistively loaded thin-film V-monopole and a 500–0 oscilloscope probe. The pulse-receiving performance of the antenna was evaluated in a time-domain antenna range, for various directions of the incident pulse. The antenna is capable of receiving a 520 ps electromagnetic pulse, incident within 45° from the boresite direction, with good fidelity. The antenna was also tested in a transverse electomagnetic (TEM) cell both in time and frequency domains. The frequency-domain receiving transfer function of the antenna was found to be within - 57 ± 3 dB in the 22-1.1 GHz frequencv range.
