Abstract : A microstrip antenna having a plurality of different radiating elements spaced apart in an end-to-end arrangement, above a ground plane and separated there-from by a dielectric substrate; only one element is fed at its feedpoint, and energy emanating from the fed element is primarily coupled at one end to parasitic element(s) by the electric field generated in the fed element. The radiating pattern is determined by the phase relationship and amplitude distribution between the excited fed element and the parasitic element(s). (Author)
