A circularly polarized cavity-backed crossed loop antenna is proposed in this article. The optimized overall dimensions of the antenna are 1.13λ0 in diameter and 0.267λ0 in height (λ0 is the free-space wavelength at the center frequency), and the circumference of one loop is 1.1 λ0. Measurements show that the proposed antenna features an 81% impedance bandwidth for SWR
