Abstract: In this paper a compact h- shaped slotted microstrip patch antenna has been proposed for C-band applications. The antenna parameters such as Return loss, Bandwidth, Gain, VSWR are improved .The comparison between measured and simulated results for unslotted and h-slotted microstrip patch antenna has been discussed . The proposed antenna has been fabricated and tested in laboratory .The measured and simulated results are exhibits good agreement. The proposed antenna achieved 16.6% of bandwidth at centre frequency of 7.52 GHz with VSWR ≤ 2 and gain is 6.46dBi. The return loss of -27.97 dB is obtained for h-slot microstrip antenna with dielectric substrate (Glass PTFE εr =2.55) of thickness (h) =1.6 mm. The proposed antenna is simulated with IE3D® software.
Keywords: Bandwidth, Gain, H-Slot, Microstrip Antenna, Return Loss.
