Multi-conductor quadrifilar helix antennas are considered. Such antenna contains
four helix radiators. Each of them consists of several metal conductors. The
following variants of multi-conductor quadrifilar helix antennas are
investigated: quarter – wavelength with two and three conductors and half –
wavelength with two and three conductors. Phenomenological theory of such
antennas is proposed. Results of numerical and experimental investigation of
such antennas are presented.
