Microstrip $8{ imes}2$ sub-array antennas for a extension to active phased array antennas are designed, fabricated and measured for TX/RX dual operation in satellite communication and a reception of satellite broadcasting. For the frequency range from 11.7 to 12.75 GHz for RX and from 14 to 14.5 GHz for TX, two orthogonal linear polarizations of ${pm}45^{\circ}$ are used to transmit and receive simultaneously with one radiator. They adopt dual resonance between two patches for wideband characteristics in RX band and show isolation characteristics over 20 dB. An electrical beam tilt of $30^{\circ}$ is achieved and a tapered power distribution, narrow element spacing are used for the purpose of low side-lobe characteristics.
