In this paper, small sized half-wavelength circular loop antenna which attached beneath a visor of helmet is designed and fabricated at the resonant frequency of 449MHz. To reduce the size of the antenna, double series-shorted stubs are inserted inside the loop for practical use of a vacant space of loop inside. Also, It is designed for the printed type to install the helmet easily. The size of antenna on helmet is reduced to 87.75%(diameter : 70mm, height :.36mm) compare with general type antenna(diameter : 200mm height 101mm). The return loss, -10dB bandwidth and gain are -13.2dB, 17.6MHz(3.9%), and -1.78dBd. And, radiation pattern is omni-directional pattern at H-plane. Therefore, it can be seen that the half-wavelength circular loop antenna using double series-shorted stubs is proper structure for the miniaturization and the installed antenna of the helmet.
