 Abstract
The effect of substrate size on the radiation characteristics of an H-plane 5-elements linear array antenna with an aperture coupled microstrip patch antenna (ACMPA) as unit element is investigated. The distance between the patch center and the substrate edge on the E-plane () and that on the H-plane () at which the maximum broadside gain of an H-plane 5-elements linear array antenna occurs are the same to those of single ACMPA using a unit element. Besides, and at which the minimum broadside gain of an H-plane 5-elements linear array antenna occurs are almost the same to those of single ACMPA using a unit element. The edge effect on the radiation characteristics of an H-plane 5-elements linear array antenna is mainly determined by . The optimum substrate size for the radiation characteristics of an H-plane linear array antenna could be obtained from that of single ACMPA using a unit element of an H-plane linear array antenna.
