This paper presents the basic characteristics of a 5 element dipole array antenna which has a four parastic element and one driving element at the center of the circular array. The coupled integral equations for the unknown current distributions on dipole elements are derived and solved by applying Galerkin's method of moments. The numerical results show that the highest power gain of 7.8 dBi is obtained at radius of d = 0.3lλ when two short circuited parastic element neighbors. In order to verify the theoretical analysis, the radiation pattern is compared with Preston's results.
