This Letter discusses an experimental study and Hankel-domain analysis of annular ring patch antennas attached to a laminated glass vehicle windscreen. The fundamental TM(11) and higher-order TM(21), modes are studied, the latter being of interest for mobile satellite communications. Attaching the antenna to the screen brings about a doubling in the bandwidth, and adding a resistive ring on top of the screen further improves the bandwidth.
