A dual-band single-feed circularly polarized, S-shaped slotted patch antenna with a small frequency-ratio is proposed for GPS applications. An S-shaped slot is cut at the centre of a square patch radiator for dual-band operation. A single microstrip feed-line is underneath the center of the coupling aperture ground-plane. The frequency-ratio of the antenna can be controlled by adjusting the S-shaped slot arm lengths. The measured 10-dB return loss bandwidths for the lower and upper-bands are 16% (1.103-1.297 GHz) and 12.5% (1.444-1.636 GHz), respectively. The measured 3-dB axial-ratio (AR) bandwidth is 6.9% (1.195-1.128 GHz) for the lower-band and 0.6% (1.568-1.577 GHz) for the upper-band. The measured gain is more than 5.0 dBic over both the bands. The measured frequency-ratio is 1.28. The overall antenna size is 0.46 ??o ?? 0.46??o ?? 0.086??o at 1.2 GHz.
