A new configuration of the dual-band and dual-polarized antenna is presented, which is fed by aperture coupling for the existing mobile communication systems working over 870-960 MHz (GSM) and 1710-2180 MHz (DCS/UMTS) frequency band. XX-Polar antenna stands for an antenna with dual-band and dual linear slant polarization. In this paper DU band stands for DCS/UMTS band. Measurement results show that the proposed antenna yields good broadside radiation characteristics including symmetric radiation patterns, low cross-polarization level ( <; -14 dB), low backlobe level (F/B >; 20 dB) and high isolation (>; 30 dB) at both bands. The designed antenna has an impedance bandwidth of 20.4% (790-970 MHz) for VSWR <; 1.5 in the lower band and 29.3% for VSWR <; 1.6 (1630-2190 MHz) in the upper band. The measured average gains are about 9.3-10.2 and 8.6-10 dBi in the lower and upper band, respectively. It is also promising for array antenna in various wireless systems.
