To produce circularly polarized (CP) radiation, a small, double-sided, crossed dipole antenna with two metal strips loaded for phase delay is proposed. The proposed antenna uses two orthogonal, unequal length dipoles, connected in parallel to a coaxial probe feed. It requires no matching network. The required power and phase relationships are obtained by proper choice of dipole lengths and the metal strips attached to them. The antenna also operates at its half wavelength orthogonal modes, for the UHF band. The phase delay metal strip generates the two resonant modes for CP radiation. Simulated and measured results indicate that the crossed dipole structure can produce CP radiation. An impedance bandwidth (VSWR ≤ 2) of about 11.8% and a 3-dB axial-ratio (AR) bandwidth of about 3.3% around the center frequency of 925 MHz were measured.
