This paper presents an antenna element suitable as a broadband AMPS/GSM900 antenna for cellular BTS applications. The suggested antenna model consists of a two layer aperture coupled patches which are capacitively fed with a metallic microstrip feed. Such a feed structure is suitable for antennas requiring beam steering.
