This paper presents simulation results of bending the half-wave dipole antenna at different points of its length. Antenna under test is a center-fed dipole simulated at two different dimensions: half-wave length and resonant length. The bend angle is incremented by 5 degrees starting from 5 degrees to 90 degrees. The entire dipole is divided into 32 segments. There are 16 segments them from one end of the dipole to its center. The bent length is incremented by one segment length per test point.
