This paper presents a 6-element series array quasi-lumped element resonator antenna. The proposed antenna employs an interdigital capacitor in parallel with a straight strip conductor whose centre finger is shorted across the capacitor. An array configuration is imperative as the gain of a single quasi-lumped element arrangement was only moderate and specifically put at about 9.4 dBi which may not be adequate for long distance communications. Relevant Equations for radiation pattern of the quasi-lumped element resonator (QLER) were derived and presented. The proposed antenna array exhibits a gain enhancement up to about 29.47% with a noticed size reduction of 80 × 30 sq. mm. Compared to standard long wire antenna and other approaches of capacitive loaded long wire antennas, it was proved that the proposed antenna has a relatively better performance yet with significant size reduction. Consequently, it is an ideal candidate for MMIC designs and wireless communication applications.
