Oscar Garay, Quirino Balzano, Thomas J Manning: Multi-resonant laminar antenna. Motorola, Juliana Agon, December 24, 1991: US05075691 (86 worldwide citation)

A multi-resonant antenna is formed by a plurality of resonators which resonate at different frequencies. A feed member is coupled to the multi-resonant resonators. Disposed between and separating the resonators from the feed member is a dielectric substrate.

Oscar M Garay, Quirino Balzano, Thomas J Manning: Integral laminar antenna and radio housing. Motorola, Martin J McKinley, January 24, 1989: US04800392 (86 worldwide citation)

A laminar antenna includes a conductive ground plane (102), a first dielectric lamina (106), a conductive exciter lamina (108), a second dielectric lamina (114), and a conductive radiator lamina (116). The radiator partially overlaps the exciter and the amount of overlap determines the input impedan ...
