Because of the similarities of the structure shapes (with higher complexities of the nervures for A3), the antennas A2 and A3 behave in the same way at lower frequencies, as may be seen from Figures 6(c) and 6(d).
The obtained gain and efficiency decrease when the complexity of the antenna nervures becomes much higher.
