Abstract: In this paper, the design, simulation and fabrication of a filtering antenna is proposed. The filtering antenna structure is, therefore, framed by integrating elements, such as the feed line, parallel coupled resonators and the microstrip patch antenna array. The combined elements are designed for third order Chebyshev band pass filter with a pass band ripple of 0.1 dB and the integrated structure is more suitable for different S-band (2 GHz – 4 GHz) wireless applications. The equivalent circuit model for the proposed filtering antenna structure is analysed and the design procedure of the filter is also presented in detail. The 1×2 rectangular patch antenna array acts both as a radiating element and also as the last resonator of the band pass filter. The proposed filtering antenna structure results in high out-of-band rejection, enhanced bandwidth and a gain of about 209 MHz and 1.53 dB. The fabricated result agrees well with the simulation characteristics.
