A radial line slot antenna (RLSA) is a high-gain and high-efficiency planar antenna. A linearly polarized RLSA (LP-RLSA) is attractive for applications of various subscriber radio systems. However, the slot arrangement for linear polarization gives rise to serious reflection from slots, which disturbs the normal antenna operation. A new LP-RLSA slot design is presented where reflection canceling slots are added to the conventional ones; four slots form one slot set as a unit radiator of linear polarization. The experiments confirm the design: the antenna return-loss is improved from -2 to -10 dB. Antenna efficiencies of 48 and 54% are measured for 400 and 600-mmφ antennas, respectively. This is the first report of the normal operation of LP-RLSAs
