A compact series-fed, omnidirectional printed dipole array for mm-wave bands n257, n259, and n261 is proposed. A series feed technique with microstrip to grounded-coplanar-waveguide transition was used to feed the antenna. The prototype was fabricated and measured for the range from 27.25 GHz to 28.5 GHz. The measured peak gain is 10.3 dBi with a maximum azimuthal ripple of 4.4 dB.
