A small circularly polarised (CP) patch antenna with dual T-shaped probe feeds is presented. The patch is folded like a cap to generate a CP wave as well as to reduce the size of the antenna. The proposed antenna is operated at the centre frequency of 2.28 GHz with circular polarisation. The impedance bandwidth (SWR<2) is 21.8% from 2 to 2.49 GHz and the axial ratio bandwidth (AR<3 dB) is 3.5%. The measured gain is around 7.5 dBi. The antenna shows a good CP performance with a symmetric radiation pattern. The total area of reduction is 54% in comparison with the conventional half-wave patch antenna.
