The extraordinary optical transmission (EOT) through an array of holes in a metal plate has been a constant source of inspiration for researchers for over a decade (Ebbesen et al 1998 Nature 391 667–9). In this paper, an EOT analogue is proposed in the microwave frequency range for enhancing the radiation performance of a stacked dipole antenna. It is observed that the back radiated power of the antenna is considerably reduced and the reason behind transmission enhancement is the excitation of Fabry–Pérot resonant modes on the slit loaded aperture. Computational analysis based on finite difference time domain is performed for identifying the true reason behind resonant transmission enhancement.
