A slotted bifilar or quadrifilar helix antenna has a plurality of helical antenna elements. The antenna elements have an outer planar surface. A slot element is secured to an interior of the outer planar surface. The slot element extends radially inwardly to a slot element edge. At least two radially opposite slot element edges define a tapered slot. At a shorted point on the antenna, at least one radially opposite pair of slot elements are electrically shorted together. A feed point is axially offset from the shorted point along the antenna axis.
