This paper describes a portable tracking antenna system that is used for line of sight communications with the small UAVs being developed by Monash University. The antenna is a wire-frame parabolic antenna that is mechanically rotated in an elevation over azimuth mode in response to tracking signals derived from the UAV video link transmissions. The antenna feed system is arranged in a four channel monopulse format to derive the steering signals for the tracking and a single bore sight channel for the data reception.
