This letter presents the design, fabrication, and experimental characterization of small spherical antennas fabricated using arrays of non-interconnected planar conductor elements. The antennas are based upon spherical resonator structures with radiation Q-factors approaching $1.5times$ the fundamental lower limit. The antennas are formed by coupling these resonators to an impedance-matched coplanar strip transmission line. Direct electrical connection between the feed and the antenna are made only to conductor elements coplanar with the transmission line, simplifying the fabrication process. The incident energy excites a collective resonant mode of the entire sphere (an electric dipole resonance), thereby inducing currents in each of the rings of the structure. The presence of the conductor elements outside of the feed plane is critical towards achieving the excellent bandwidth behavior observed here. The fabricated antennas have a normalized size $ka=0.54$ (where $k$ is the wavenumber and $a$ is the radius of the sphere) and exhibit high radiative efficiencies ($>$ 90%) and bandwidth performance near the fundamental limit for their size.
