This paper describes a concept of a dual-orthogonal, linearly polarized ultra wideband (UWB) antenna. The radiation principle and feeding scheme is described. Subsequently the prototype is introduced and the theoretical assumptions are verified by the measurements. A very good polarization purity was achieved over very wide frequency range.
