Linear and circular polarisations are ofen used respectively for terrestrial and spatial communications. In this paper, we propose a new complex multi-band antenna working simultaneously in linear and circular polarisations for WLAN, GPS1 and GPS2 standards. This antenna is a combination of stacked patches, printed on ceramic substrates, with a metallic monopolar type structure within a metallic cavity placed in the center of the previous patches.
