    Attached are some images of two antennas that were removed from wi-fi type devices, they are both for 2.4ghz devices. The J one looks like a Jpole to me, (obviously), the I one looks like a whip with ground aerials on the reverse side, can someone properly characterize the two types of antennas used here? I'm a bit rough in the antenna department, are they both quarter wave?

    Hello,

    The first one looks indeed like a j-pole antenna.
    The second one looks like a ground-plane with an impedance adjustment stage.

    I've been informed on another forum and after some brief Google research have found that the first type of antenna is called an Inverted F antenna, it's not a j-pole and after looking at the positioning of the ground plane it's obvious to me now that it can't be a jpole, they said the second appears to be a planar version of a sleeve dipole.
