FIG. 2 is a left side view of the antenna of FIG. 1.

FIG. 3 is a front view of the antenna of FIG. 1, the rear view being substantially a mirror image.

FIG. 4 is a right side view of the antenna of FIG. 1.

FIG. 5 is a top view of the antenna of FIG. 1.

FIG. 6 is a bottom view of the antenna of FIG. 1.

FIG. 7 is an offset-section view of the antenna of FIG. 1, taken in the direction of and along the line of line 7-7 of FIG. 3.

FIG. 8 is a section view of the antenna of FIG. 1, taken in the direction of line 8-8 of FIG. 3.

FIG. 9 is a top-left front perspective view of the antenna of FIG. 1.

FIG. 10 is a top-right front perspective view of the antenna of FIG. 1.

FIG. 11 is a bottom-left front perspective view of the antenna of FIG. 1.

FIG. 12 is a bottom-right front perspective view of the antenna of FIG. 1.

FIG. 13 is an enlarged detail view of the antenna of FIG. 1 defined by the circular perimeter line 13 of FIG. 12.

FIG. 14 is a slight-left front perspective view of the antenna of FIG. 1.

FIG. 15 is an enlarged detail view of the antenna of FIG. 1 defined by the circular perimeter line 15 of FIG. 14.

FIG. 16 is a slight-right front perspective view of the antenna of FIG. 1.

FIG. 17 is an enlarged detail view of the antenna of FIG. 1 defined by the circular perimeter line 17 of FIG. 16.

FIG. 18 is a front view of the antenna of FIG. 1 provided to illustrate an example environment; and,

FIG. 19 is a front view of the antenna of FIG. 1 provided to illustrate another example environment.

The broken lines in FIG. 1, FIG. 2, FIG. 3, FIG. 4, FIG. 9, FIG. 10, FIG. 11, FIG. 12, FIG. 13, FIG. 14, FIG. 16, FIG. 18, and FIG. 19 represent the bounds of the antenna design.
