An RF power divider is provided for use in a UHF-band high-power amplifier of a radio transmitter. The RF power divider includes: a single input port; first and second output ports; a first microstrip line coupled to the input port; first and second coils coupled in parallel to an output side of the first microstrip line; a second microstrip line coupled between an output side of the first coil and the first output port; a third microstrip line coupled between an output side of the second coil and the second output port; a first capacitor coupled between a ground and a contact point of the first microstrip line and the first and second coils; a resistor coupled between a contact point of the first coil and the second microstrip line, and a contact point of the second coil and the third microstrip line; and a second capacitor coupled in parallel to the resistor. Accordingly, the present invention provides a Wilkinson power divider implemented in a concentrated integer equivalent circuit, in which X/4 lines are formed by the coils and the capacitors being lumped elements instead of microstrip lines.
