A simple design for a low-profile high-gain planar antenna has been presented in the letter. The antenna has the realized gain between 9 and 11 dBi and the return loss better than 10 dB over the 5.6-6.3-GHz frequency band, i.e. 11% bandwidth. A numerical study highlighting effects of key geometrical parameters on the gain and return loss of the antenna has been performed. It has been shown as well that the presented antenna occupies area 20% smaller than a conventional microstrip patch antenna array with a similar gain.
