Simple wideband rectangular dielectric resonator antenna (DRA) for the X-band and Ku-band applications is presented. The DRA is excited by a vertical strip through a coaxial probe attached to a finite size ground plane. Good agreement between measured and simulated results is obtained. The measured bandwidth of this antenna is about 7.7 GHz with a center frequency of 12 GHz.
