Dielectric disk radiators which are excited by a narrow slot in the ground plane of a microstrip line are investigated. The resonance frequencies of the dielectric disk for the HEM11 mode are computed numerically in the complex frequency plane. From the later results, the actual resonance frequency and the Q-factor are obtained. The dielectric disk is made of a high dielectric constant ceramic material with εr=22. The radiation patterns and reflection coefficients are measured and presented for several slot lengths and dielectric disk dimensions. The radiation patterns are also computed assuming a magnetic current element, which models the slot and excites the HEM11 mode. Good agreement is obtained between the computed and measured results. The results presented here also demonstrate the viability of this type of antenna, which has high dielectric constants an efficient radiator provided the proper mode is excited
