A new design of the antenna array for mobile base stations providing two orthogonal polarizations in 1.71-2.17GHz frequency band is proposed. The antenna array includes 16 radiators, 12 power dividers and two phase shifters disposed on a metal reflector having dimensions 320×1387 mm. The developed antenna array contains less radiators and power dividers than other known antennas of this kind therefore one is cheaper for production. The fabricated sample of the proposed antenna array has return loss is better than -18.5dB and isolation better than 33dB. Beam width in the horizontal plane is equal 36 ± 4 degrees and side lobes level doesn’t exceeding -20dB. The antenna array provides gain=20.5dBi.
