A novel planar slot antenna is presented in this paper. The antenna provides dual-polarization and omnidirectional radiation patterns. Hence, it is suitable for hand-held equipments of wireless systems. The proposed antenna is optimized for operation at 5.2 GHz. The antenna, without ground plane extension, occupies an area of 2.17×2.17 cm2. An impedance bandwidth of 10.6% is obtained, with a very good isolation between the two excitation ports. Appealing omnidirectional radiation patterns are maintained over the entire impedance bandwidth. The gains of the two polarizations are 2.59 and 3.52 dB, while the radiation efficiencies are 93% and 99.8%.
