Stripline antenna array for local information-telecommunication radio networks
There are represented results of theoretical and experimental researches of stripline antenna array for local information-telecommunication radio networks of IEEE 802.11b, g and IEEE 802.16 standards, which use radio frequency band 2.3…2.7 GHz. Antenna array consists of 4 (2×2) irradiators, which are excited with help of non-symmetric strip line with air fulfillment. Irradiators are two-resonator strip elements, made from thin metallic plate and fixed over the screen by means of metallic pins. Lower strip resonator elements are realized together with strip line. This approach to antenna array development allows to abandon the application of dielectric SHF substrates and hence, to reduce ohmic loss in the antenna and reduce its cost.
