In this paper, an original method to reduce the height of a dual-polarized unidirectional wideband antenna based on two crossed magneto-electric dipoles is proposed. The miniaturization technique consists in adding a capacitive load between vertical plates. The height of the radiating element is reduced to 0.1λ0, where λ0 is the wavelength at the lowest operation frequency for a Standing Wave Ratio (SWR) <2.5, which corresponds to a reduction factor of 37.5%. The measured input impedance… CONTINUE READING
