This work demonstrates for the first time the possibility of realizing a mechanically stable no-adhesive rectangular DRA, which has been a long standing demand for practical implementation. A simple ground plane with vertical metallic pins positioned strategically have been explored as clipping devise to ensure robust fixation of DRA without any glue. The study is based on the dominant TE11δ mode and the proposed design maintains unperturbed modal and the radiation characteristics throughout the band. The design has been executed for a 3.6 GHz antenna indicating its stability in maintaining the said characteristics. As much as 6 dBi gain with about 30 dB co to cross polar isolation has been demonstrated. © 2019 URSI. All rights reserved.
