Abstract

This paper presents the design of Global Positioning System (GPS) antenna that can be used as guiding direction for fishermen on a handset or integrated with small boat. The antenna has dimension 67 mm × 67 mm × 1.67 mm which is fabricated using FR4 material with dielectric constant 4.6. The CST Microwave Studio software is used to study the characteristics of the proposed antenna. This paper discuss the impedance bandwidth, gain, radiation pattern and circular polarization bandwidth (CPBW) of the antenna design. The impedance bandwidth showed 36 MHz of bandwidth in frequency range 1568 MHz - 1604 MHz where gain achieved 5.77 dBi. CPBW is 17 MHz from frequency 1568 MHz to 1685 MHz.
