4. CONCLUSION A patch antenna capable of generating a wide horizontal radiation pattern covering about one half-space has been proposed. The broadening of the antenna’s horizontal radiation pattern is easily achieved by using a narrow radiating patch that incorporates an inverted-V ground plane. Prototypes showing a wide horizontal radiation pattern for WLAN operation in the 2.4-GHz band have been successfully implemented. The results obtained indicate that the bend angle of the inverted-V ground plane has a highly significant effect on the broadening of the horizontal radiation pattern of the proposed antenna
