A design of a planar dual-mode filter is proposed and developed for satellite and wireless communication systems. The novelty of the proposed structure consists of replacing simple diagonal design with a starlike one. This offers the ability of controlling the central frequency and the bandwidth. The filter was implemented on Rogers substrate with 10.8 dielectric constant. The proposed filter structure is 37% smaller in size in comparison with traditional dual mode filters.
