Herein, it is aimed to design an Active Frequency Selective Surface (AFSS) based high performance reconfigurable filtering antenna (Filtenna). The proposed AFSS unit element is consist of a single PIN diode with a simple microstrip patch design which performance characteristics are varies with the state of the diodes. The proposed unit elements have been used to form an array that is placed at the aperture of a double ridge horn antenna. With the variation in state of diodes, the antenna acts as a Filtenna module to filtering the incoming electromagnetic waves in frequency band of 1.8 to 2.8 GHz. From the experimental results, it is shown that the proposed Filtenna achieves a signal attenuation of 7.3 dBi at 2.1 GHz.
