This paper presents a novel compact, wideband, four directional radiation patterns, antenna. The radiating element topology is inspired from the Annular Slot Antenna (ASA) and printed wideband monopole. The antenna is designed for North American ATSC-TV indoor reception. For an S11<;-6dB, it covers both High-VHF and UHF bands. It presents four relatively uncorrelated patterns. The antenna simulated performances are thoroughly analyzed and validated via measurements.
