Printed strip bow tie antenna is presented in order to achieve wide bandwidth, high gain and perfect smaller size suitable for indoor reception of UHF signal specifically for the newly introduced GOTV and STARCOM television (300-600MHz) television in Nigeria which uses Yagi antenna which is currently given the old environmental pictures to the Nigeria space. The simulated parameters shows that the bow-tie antenna has wider bandwidth ,higher gain ,lower front back ratio ,lower cross polarization and smaller size of 1. 5mm which make it suitable for indoor wall decorator or perfectly incorporated in television panels.
