A new half-hemispherical dielectric resonator antenna (h-HDRA) is proposed and a two-element h-HDRA configuration is employed to design a broadband monopole-type radiator. Two half sections of a hemispherical DRA are employed to enhance the impedance bandwidth by introducing an additional resonant mode. Since the new geometry of an h-HDRA is studied here for the first time, it is characterized using simulation and experimental studies. Two closely spaced resonant modes, which in a two-element h-HDRA generate monopole-type radiation are investigated. Results for both the single and two-element h-HDRAs are presented. As much as 35% impedance bandwidth (S11<-10dB) with more than 5 dBi peak gain, 99.08% efficiency and monopole-type radiation pattern has been demonstrated using a prototype occupying a compact volume measuring 0.48lambda0 by 0.2lambda0 approximately, lambda0 being the wave length corresponding to the center of the impedance bandwidth
