A polarisation switchable microstrip array antenna is presented. This array consists of square patch antennas coupled in close proximity to a microstrip line. The polarisation state can be switched electrically by short- or open-circuiting the end of the feedline using a PIN diode. Fundamental characteristics of the proposed array are investigated by measurements performed at S-band to demonstrate the proposal.
