A dominant-mode rectangular cavity antenna design yielding an improved bandwidth is experimentally verified. Simple field theories indicate that extending the aperture height should increase the antenna bandwidth without shifting the operation frequency. Antenna samples built from a 4.4 dielectric constant material produce 3-dB efficiency bandwidths of 15 and 23 percent for the respective cavity height-to-width ratios of 0.5 and 0.75 at 7 GHz.
