Purpose – In this research paper, the electrical and radiation characteristics of a proposed fractal antenna based on the Koch curve in the second iteration for reception of digital terrestrial television signals are designed and analyzed by laboratory tests. Methodology/approach/design – The design is based on the concepts of fractal geometry and on a previously designed antenna, which is adapted to obtain a different frequency of operation; the designed antenna is constructed in three

Findings – The fractal antenna based on the Koch curve has the necessary characteristics to receive digital terrestrial television signals in the UHF band.
