A pattern reconfigurable dielectric resonator antenna for wireless fidelity (2.4 GHz) band is presented in this communication. A rectangular dielectric resonator antenna which is fed by a microstrip line serves as the main radiating element. The pattern reconfigurability is achieved by the introduction of slots on the ground plane. The switch placement on the slots redistributes the surface currents and results in pattern reconfigurability. Six useful configurations are obtained by the ON/OFF combination of the switches with a diverse pattern and almost same resonant frequency.
