A novel printed dipole antenna was designed for the Lband satellite communication system Inmarsat (Downlink: 1525-1559 MHz, Uplink: 1626.5-1660.5 MHz). Several structural parameters were experimentally studied with care to establish a design procedure. The measured results show that the impedance bandwidth for return loss below −10 dB is about 170 MHz and that the half-power bandwidth (HPBW) can be up to 110 • . The antenna can be used in high latitudes because of wider HPBW.
