A novel dual-FET active patch antenna element and arrays for quasi-optical power combining are described. The circuit uses two FET's that symmetrically load a split patch antenna. The configuration of the devices decreases H-plane cross-polarization dramatically. The power combining was achieved by injection locking through mutual coupling. An equivalent isotropic radiation power of 0.88 W for a 2-element dual-FET patch antenna array has been obtained. For a 2×2 array, an equivalent isotropic radiated power of 2.99 W was achieved. The circuit is planar and amenable to monolithic circuits
