A novel symmetric-aperture antenna is proposed for broadband circularly polarized (CP) radiation using a coplanar waveguide (CPW) feed. The proposed antenna consists of a CPW-feed and a wide symmetric aperture along the diagonal axis. A symmetric-aperture consists of two diamond-shaped sections. The symmetric-aperture and CPW-feeding structure are fabricated on the same plane of a dielectric substrate. Wideband CP radiation is achieved by changing the arms of symmetric-aperture and stripline length. The measured bandwidths of 3-dB axial ratio (AR) and 10-dB return loss are around 68% (2.4-4.85 GHz) and 107% (1.6-5.25 GHz), respectively. The measured boresight gain is more than 3.0 dBic over the CP bandwidth. Overall antenna size is around 0.7λo × 0.7λo × 0.019λo at 3.5 GHz.
