This thesis explores the use of wide band log periodic dipole array (LPDA) antennas in direction finding systems. A wide band log periodic antenna will be constructed and tested to ensure hardware capability. A novel approach utilizing non-uniform spacing in a linear array will be used to improve the spatial resolution of the direction finding system. These specialized linear arrays are known as minimum redundancy or non-redundant linear arrays.
