A matched antenna on a printed circuit board (PCB) can provide for an affordable, easily manufactured and designed PCB-based antenna in the 429 to 433 MHz bands. The matched antenna, which addresses the need for a small antenna based on a single-sided PC board, employs one of several disclosed fractal geometries. By utilizing a smaller area and by moving the feed point to the edge to allow the antenna to accommodate easier circuit design and trace routing, the matched antenna provides improvements over both past and current designs.
