This work reports preliminary results and a prototype of an innovative mechanical beam steering circular patch antenna for 5G indoor cellular access networks with sub6 GHz operation. The beam steering is achieved using 18 screws installed around the circular patch radiator, working as a reflector by proper managing the screws position and height. The new antenna can steer its main beam over 360º in azimuth plane and from -30º to 30º in the elevation plane with gain up to 8.01 dBi at 4.6 GHz.
