Fractal Antenna retrofitted a conventional ¼ wave Marconi monopole antenna with a slip on fractal metamaterial collar/sleeve to increase the gain by 3 dB and TRIPLE the bandwidth. (video embedded below) This is their attempt to illustrate and promote their patented/proprietary fractal metamaterial/ resonator/ antenna technology
* The gain of the antenna also undergoes improvement, more than doubling value.
* Conservatively describing the bandwidth improvement as tripled, the actual bandwidth increases from 120 MHz to a new value 1500 MHz, just by slipping the fractal metamaterial sleeve over the monopole
