Continuous transverse stub (CTS) technology has been adapted for use with coaxial lines to produce effective microwave antenna structures that radiate omnidirectionally, with high efficiency, low reflection, and useful radiation patterns. In this paper, we describe the design, construction, and testing of a new type of antenna arrays, that is, a six-element multiband (4.2 and 19.4 GHz) CTS antenna array. The design of the CTS array was optimized through simulation using FDTD and then built and tested using both S-parameters and radiation pattern measurements. Simulation results agreed very well with measured data. These simple and low cost coaxial CTS structures could be adapted for base station applications in wireless communication, for satellite communication systems, and identification friend-or-foe (IFF) systems for the military.
