Circularly polarized diagonally symmetric slotted microstrip-patch antennas are proposed with compact size. The compact circularly polarized (CP) diagonally symmetric slotted microstrip-patch (DSSMP) antenna design rules are also summarized. Circularly polarized radiation can be achieved using any arbitrarily shaped slots in diagonal directions on the square microstrip-patch antenna. Different shapes for the slots are studied and compared, based on the fixed overall volume of the antenna for circularly polarized diagonally symmetric slotted microstrip-patch antennas. The cross-shaped-slot diagonally symmetric slotted microstrip-patch antenna is compact when compared with the circular-, square-, and circular-ring-shaped diagonally symmetric slotted microstrip-patch antennas. A measured 3 dB axial-ratio (AR) bandwidth of around 0.7% (6.0 MHz) with 2.0% (18.0 MHz) impedance bandwidth was achieved. The measured boresight gain was more than 3.3 dBic over the operating band, while the overall antenna size was 0.272λ0 × 0.272λ0 × 0.0138λ0 at 0.905 GHz.
