In this abstract, we presented a new way of feeding a dipole type antenna which increases the transmit efficiency (B1+ per square root maximum SAR). The main radiating antenna element was printed on one side of a dielectric substrate with capacitive coupling to a shorter straight dipole element used as the feed element printed on the opposite side. Indirectly (passively) and directly fed (conventional) meander antennas were fabricated and their performances were compared numerically and experimentally. The indirectly fed dipole antenna exhibited increase in transmit efficiency for straight and meandered dipoles.
