Abstract: In this paper, a F-shape microstrip patch antenna is designed and analyzed. The antenna design is simulated using a tool named Sonnet Suites, a planar 3D planar electromagnetic simulator that use Method of Moments. Probe feed technique is used in the proposed F-shape patch antenna. Simulation results show that the impedance bandwidth is 36.6% of the center frequency.The measured return loss is below -10dB.The proposed microstrip patch antenna is suitable for C-band communications.
