Crank lines on a dielectric substrate backed by a conducting plane are designed for radiation of a circularly polarized wave. The guided wavelength of the crank lines is evaluated by an iterative technique based on the numerically determined current distribution. It is found that the crank lines designed with the final guided wavelength can radiate a circularly polarized main beam in the broadside direction. The frequency responses of the radiation characteristics are also presented.
