In this paper, a simple broadband circular polarization (CP) V-shaped slot antenna is developed. The CP antenna consists of Z-shaped feedline with a stub and a patch, and symmetrically etched two rightangled V-shaped slots (an open slot and a closed slot) along the center line. The stub is introduced for multi-resonances to obtain broadband. The broad CP and impedance bandwidths overlap by the symmetrically etched right-angled V-shaped closed slot along the center line and the Z-shaped feedline placed in a proper position. The measured results show that the proposed antenna has a broad overlapped 3-dB axial ratio (AR) bandwidth and -10 dB impedance bandwidth of 71% (2.19-4.6 GHz).
