Title: Antenna having polarization diversity

Abstract: A compact antenna includes a main antenna patch. A first feed point and a second feed point connect with the main antenna patch to provide current in the main antenna. Excitation of the first feed point produces polarization in a first direction along the main antenna patch and excitation of the second feed point produces polarization in a second direction different from the first direction.
