This paper presents an antenna for the UHF-TV reception consisting of skeleton slot array installed on a reflector. We propose a dipole model of the skeleton-slot elements to calculate its radiation pattern. The prototype antenna has 13 dBi antenna gain, 30% frequency band width and a function of beam tilting, which are sufficient characteristics for the UHF-TV reception.
