The performance of circular microstrip patch antennas is presented where the conducting patch and ground plane are constructed from a grid. Improved cross polarization, mode suppression, and band-width are possible, but are accompanied by lower gain and reduced front-to-back ratios. A computer simulation reveals the current structure. The density and shape of the grid pattern are important parameters. Such antennas are can be manufactured within glass laminates. (C) 1999 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
