This paper proposes an algorithm of generating fully reproducible irregular fractal structures for antenna design. Three types of pseudorandom fractal clusters are introduced. The multi-frequency behavior of the irregular-shaped fractal antennas is studied by means of numerical analysis. The antenna behavior is studied under feeder displacement. As shown by numerical results feeder displacements allow one to control the spatial-frequency antenna characteristics.
