Design, fabrication, and measurement of a new compact filter-antenna for modern wireless communication systems are presented in this letter. Two microstrip square open-loop resonators, a coupled line, and a Γ-shaped antenna are used and integrated to be a filter-antenna. The Γ-shaped antenna is excited by a coupled line that is treated as the admittance inverter in filter design. The Γ-shaped antenna performs not only a radiator, but also the last resonator of the bandpass filter. Therefore, near-zero transition loss is achieved between the filter and the antenna. The design procedure follows the circuit approach-synthesis of bandpass filters. Measured results show that the filter-antenna achieves an impedance bandwidth of 16.3% (over 2.26-2.66 GHz) at a reflection coefficient |S11 | <; - 10 dB and has a gain of 2.41 dBi.
