Abstract

In this study, A cuboid shape dielectric resonator antenna has been proposed. The feeding mechanism of the proposed antenna is probe feed by using parasitic feed element with switch to steer the radiation pattern of the antenna. The operating frequency range of the antenna is 200 MHz (2.5-2.6) GHz that is suitable for Long Term Evolution (LTE) femtocell base stations. A formula of waveguide mode used to obtain the optimum dimensions of the dielectric resonator. The surface current distribution has been studied when the switch being on and off. A good agreement observed between the simulated and measured return loss values.
