Abstract: In the most recent days microstrip antennas are mostly used in the wireless communication due to the salient features like low cost, less weight, small size. But these antennas are having some drawbacks like narrow bandwidth, low gain etc. In this paper a microstrip antenna with wide bandwidth is presented. For this purpose we took two different radiating elements which are connected together through a matched section and these elements are embedded on a single layer structure. This new introduced structure offers a dual-band microstrip antenna. By controlling the resonant frequency of these two elements, means by keeping constant value of resonant frequency of one element and varying the resonant frequency of other element, then a much more improved bandwidth approximately 21 % has been obtained. Representation, calculation and measurement for this new antenna has been done with the help of software MATLAB and also from EM-TALK online antenna calculator.
