Abstract

New electromagnetically coupling fed low profile broadband high gain E-shaped microstrip antennas (MSA) were proposed for high speed wireless networks in IEEE 802.11 a and j standards. The proposed antenna uses an E-shaped microstrip patch covered by a radome and fed by an electromagnetically coupled strip. To validate this concept, a single antenna element and a sub-array were designed, built and measured. The measured results indicate that the element and the sub-array cover the band from 4.8 to 6.0 GHz (return loss < −10 dB) and produce a gain of 8 dBi and 11 dBi, respectively. The developed prototypes may find their applications in wireless communication networks as mobile or base antennas.
