The log-periodic dipole array (LPDA) consist of an array of dipoles in which there have a different lengths and spacing. The wire may be straight or it may be strung back and forth between trees or walls just to get enough wire into the air; this type of antenna sometimes is called a zigzag antenna. Rumsey’s principle requires that the locations of all elements be specified by angles rather than distances, because of this the log periodic dipole array must be correspondingly longer to get very wide bandwidths and gives a very high data rate transmission. The significance of this study is to understand how do the LPDA can be used to monitor solar activities of the sun using the LPDA antenna. The characteristics that need to be considered during construct this antenna is the radiation pattern, polarization, operation of the frequency band, gain and efficiency of an antenna which indicates the power or field strength radiated in any direction relative to that in the direction of maximum radiation. The arrangement of elements in increasing order from the top of the antenna until the bottom part of antenna. Our designed antenna was constructed using aluminum for the further investigation, we can use a copper and check the difference between two of this element. For this study, we just analyzed the source of RFI using this antenna and for the further analysis, we can use this antenna to monitor the solar burst.
