They are normally long transmission line with a number of bends and discontinuities such that when microwave power flowes therough it, radiations take place at those discontinuities. In these antennas, the phase at those discontinuities are very important. To obtain the input impedance match, another end of the line is terninated with another load (typically ~Z0) and hence they are lossy and broadband.
