Tightly coupled arrays (TCA) have received considerable

limited to single or dual linear polarizations. Considering the importance of

design a CP TCA with a simple configuration. This paper presents a

wide overlapped impedance bandwidth and axial ratio (AR) bandwidth. A

with an isolated crossed dipole of the same size indicates that the VSWR<3

increased from 1.3:1 to 2.1:1. Analysisis given to explain the principles of AR

between a CP-TCCDA and a conventional crossed dipole array. To

fabricated and measured. The measured results confirm that the proposed

3-dB AR bandwidth from 2.35GHz to 5.6GHz (2.38:1), which are much

using the same element.
