Helical antennas have been popular antenna configurations meant for various applications provided its simple structure. Studies on the best custom shape parameters dielectric loaded helical antenna for Access Point WLAN IEEE 802.11 b/g 2.4 GHz to 2.48 GHz applications had been done. It presents the investigation of a Novel helical antenna incorporated with Barium Strontium Titanate (BST). Methods and antenna assembly techniques are based on readings. Much scrutiny focuses on the parametric study of such antennas with the use of simulation tools CST Microwave Studio capable of performing multiple dimension parameter sweeps. The antenna impedance is optimized by varying the antenna geometrical parameters and the dielectric loading within transient solver. The antenna design is optimized for operation with two of the WLAN Access Points (APs) products already available in the market to determine its suitability, integration and as to provide an alternative piece to the manufacturers antennas arsenal. A helical antenna with a high permittivity dielectric loaded place in the middle of the helix is designed here should operate as the WLAN b/g Access Point. It is fed through a square flange jack SMA. The ground plane acts like a reflector is cut not bigger than 29 mm in radius. The antenna model resulted in producing higher gain than without incorporating BST as its dielectric.
