A novel design of a circularly polarized annular-ring slot antenna is discussed. The circular polarization is attained through a newly proposed double-bent microstripline that feeds the antenna at two different positions. Several structural parameters were experimentally studied with care to establish a design procedure, which was subsequently drawn into a design flow chart. Validation was carried out using the antennas designed at 3.5 and 1.59 GHz. The measured 3-dB axial-ratio bandwidth (ARBW) for the former is 10.5% and for the latter, 10.0%, which is larger than the 8.5% 3-dB ARBW required by an Inmarsat application.
