The resonant quadrifilar helix antennas have been widely applied to space communication links due to its relatively small volume and wide beam elevation pattern coverage over the upper hemisphere. According to the requirements of GPS and BD receiving antenna, a dual-frequency enclosed antenna is designed in this paper with two 3/4 wavelength quadrifilar helix antennas and a novel feed structure combined feed network with infinite microstrip balun. The feed structure provides excellent phase
