Abstract

This paper proposes a dual-band left-handed circularly polarized triangular-patch array that is developed for land vehicle mobile system aimed at mobile satellite communications. The array consists of six tip-truncated triangular
patches, which the first three patches are used for reception and the second three patches are used for transmission purpose. Each of three-patches has a beam pattern that can be switched in three different 120°-coverage beam in
azimuth-cut plane at a minimum targeted gain at a desired elevation angle. The targeted minimum gain of the array is 5dBic, in order for data communications with a large geostationary satellite can be achieved. The array is able to operate
in two different frequency bands i.e. 2.50 GHz band for reception (down-link) and 2.65 GHz band for transmission (uplink). The array is simulated using the Method of Moments-based software (Ansoft Maxwell), fabricated and measured
to confirm the simulated results. The measurement results show that the 5dBic-gain and the 3dB-axial ratio of the reception elements cover all of 360° azimuth direction. In the case of transmission elements, 4.3dBic-gain and the 3dBaxial
ratio can be obtained.
