In this paper, a reconfigurable phased antenna array system is constructed for the mobile terminals in the
context of 5G communication system. The proposed antenna system operates at the resonance frequency of
28 GHz. The reconfigurability of the antenna element is achieved by using a passive slot antenna element
with a switch. The passive element acts as a reflector when the switch is turned off, and thus, change in the
main beam direction occurs. The antenna system consists of two sub-arrays on each of the short edges of
the ground plane. The coverage efficiency of over 70 % at 10 dBi threshold gain is achieved by the proposed
reconfigurable phased antenna array.
