A wideband circularly polarized pinwheel-shaped planar monopole antenna fed by a wideband feeding network is presented in this paper. The proposed antenna is formed by four wideband planar monopole antenna elements with aquadruple feeding network in order to improve the performance of circular polarization. Additionally, the antenna, which is introduced here, has a high gain in the z axis direction because of its folded antenna structure. The attractive characteristics of the proposed antenna are the wide impedance bandwidth of 87.3 % (1 GHz to 2.55 GHz), the 3 dB axial ratio (AR) bandwidth of 92.3 % (1.05 GHz to 2.85 GHz), and the maximum gain within the 3 dB AR bandwidth is about 8.24 dBic.
Key words: Circular Polarization, Planar Monopole Antenna, Quadruple Feeding Network, Wideband
