Use of the body as a platform for wearable electronics is a topical subject. Omnidirectional antennas are thought to be useful for antennas in body area networks. However, the desirable properties of omnidirectional radiation patterns close to humans are severely diminished due to the lossy load nature of biological matter and high levels of scattering due to mismatch. To alleviate these problems two or more antennas can be used on the body. In this paper, two on body antennas are used with selective combining and then compared with their free space equivalents. The frequency of operation is 2.4GHz.
