ABSTRACT

 In this paper bandwidth enhanced microstrip patch antenna has been proposed for satellite communications.

The bandwidth has been increased using parasitic patches. The size of the proposed antenna is 15x8mm2. It has
been observed that the antenna has a bandwidth of 4.08GHz, a return loss of 49.07dB at the center frequency, a
maximum gain of 8.25dBi and total efficiency of more than 90%. This antenna can be prospective candidate for
satellite communications.
