Novel compact ultra-wideband (UWB) rectangular stacked dielectric resonator antennas (DRAs) with band-notched characteristics are proposed. The DRAs are designed to cover the FCC band (3.1-10.6 GHz) and have very compact sizes, due to the shorting conductor. Printed dipoles that are placed on one side of the dielectric resonator will resonate and generate band notches within the ultra-wide operating band. Simulations and measurements confirm the validation of the design principle.
