This paper presents a new reconfigurable mircrostrip antenna design approach. The approach is based on replacing the patch in a microstrip antenna by many open ended microstrip lines intersecting with each other with optimized lengths, widths and spacings. The antenna, built one line at a time, is composed of 8 intersecting microstrip lines. A 50 Ohm SMA connector feeds the antenna structure.
