A miniaturized, dual-band, circularly polarized microstrip antenna (CPMA) for satellite mobile phones was designed. Two miniaturized radiation elements using folded structures are stacked vertically to achieve dual bands. Each radiation element shows left-handed circular polarization. The total volume of this dual-band, circularly polarized, microstrip antenna is 46 mm (length) x 24 mm (width) x 13 mm (height). The overall antenna is mounted on a phone-shaped ground plane to fit inside satellite mobile phones.
