In this paper a rectangular shaped, low cost compact size microstrip
patch antenna is designed which can be used at high frequencies.
Parametric analysis of proposed antenna design is done for four different feeding methods. Different parameters like return loss, VSWR,
radiation pattern, directivity, resonant frequency are simulated and
analyzed using Ansoft HFSS 13. A prototype antenna is fabricated and
tested in order to validate the suggested method.
