Title: LOW ANGLE RADIATING SHORTED HALF PATCH ANTENNA
Abstract:
An antenna and methods of assembling the same are provided. The antenna includes a radiating element having front and rear edges and a grounding element positioned substantially parallel to and below the radiating element. The antenna also includes at least one shorting element coupling the rear edge of the radiating element to the grounding element. In the antenna, a length of the radiating element from the front to rear edges is approximately one quarter of a wavelength for a frequency the radio band of operation. Further, an a lateral distance from the front edge of the radiating element to a corresponding edge of the grounding element are less than or equal to approximately one half of the wavelength and a lateral distance from the rear edge of the radiating element to a corresponding edge of the grounding element is greater than or equal to approximately one half of the wavelength.
