Abstract

This paper presents a novel bandwidth enhancement technique by using shorting pins. A low-profile rectangular-shaped patch antenna with three shorting pins is presented. The impedance bandwidth of the proposed antenna achieves 33% (SWR < 2) while the overall thickness of the antenna is only 0.06λ0. The antenna has two close resonant bands. The lower resonant band has a conical radiation pattern with 4-dBi maximum gain and the higher resonant band has a broadside radiation pattern with 8-dBi maximum gain.
