Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9801919A2] A handheld apparatus (11), which comprises antenna means for emitting a radio signal, comprises at least two antennas (9, 14) which have different radiation characteristics. The apparatus comprises a shield (3) which surrounds some of the electronic components (2) of the apparatus and consists of an insulating material (4) metallized on the side facing away from the components as well as on the side facing the components. At least part of the metallization (5) facing away from the components constitutes a patch antenna (9) which is adapted to transmit and/or receive said radio signals. A holder (20) for a handheld apparatus (11), which is provided with a patch antenna (9) and is adapted to emit radio signals, comprises a patch antenna (19) adapted to cooperate with the corresponding patch antenna (9) on an apparatus placed in the holder. In a method of transferring radio signals between such a handheld apparatus (11) and a radio installation fixedly mounted in a vehicle, the signals are transferred between two patch antennas (9, 19) which are placed in said apparatus and a holder (20) therefor, respectively.
