The pin-patch antenna provides a low-profile monopolar element suitable for wireless access point requirements. This design concept is extended here to provide dual-band operation. Experimental results are compared to predictions from a FDTD package confirming monopolar radiation in two bands at 2.4 GHz and 5.7 GHz. This band spacing can be adjusted from 1.8:1 to more than 4:1.
