This work discusses the performance of ultra wide band antennas in the context of communication systems. An analysis of the physical origins of antenna imperfections is first presented, followed by the definition of modulation and detection scheme dependent radiation patterns. The extension of the analysis to radio links involving a multipath channel is then carried out. The discussion is supported by a variety of antenna measurements and simulations, and makes use of an angular statistical multipath channel model.
