The design and realisation of a dodecahedral antenna is investigated. The three-dimensional design with pentagonally shaped faces is described. The simulation program NEC2 (numerical electromagnetics code, version 2) is used to simulate the proposed design. This dodecahedral antenna configuration is optimised for all pertinent parameters, according to the coupling constraints and the radiation pattern. The coupling values and the radiation pattern are measured and compared with the simulated values.
