    Abstract

    A narrow band antenna of dimensions 0.54¿×0.28¿×0.09¿ is presented. The design is suited for use in cellular radio-over-fibre networks. Associated mobile equipment using the international unlicensed WiMAX band (5.470-5.725 GHz) is also described. The antenna is well matched across the band and is suitable for a full-duplex bi-directional system with simultaneous transmission ( Tx ) and reception ( Rx ). It can be used with mobile handsets offering WiMAX connections, and in multi-sector configurations for vehicular communication systems.
