A novel way of feeding single-layer microstrip patch antennas using electromagnetically coupled microstrip-T junctions is proposed. The measured isolation and 10 dB bandwidth of an X-band dual polarised antenna are ∼32 dB and 2.1%, respectively, on an εr 3.0 substrate. Since both ports of the antenna are electromagnetically coupled, the proposed antenna eliminates the need for capacitors in the RF path for active antenna applications.
