In this work, a novel microstrip antenna with the patch is compared with the patch with the ground extended of the same dimensions. The antenna with the extended ground has shifted frequency to higher side with better antenna performance is observed. A ground plane patches with 2.5 mm are placed on two sides of the patch. With this newer design, the frequency of the patch that is working at 3.6 GHz has shifted to 8.1–11.2 GHz (with better gain). This present antenna structure is fabricated using the lithographic technique. The proposed antenna provides a new way to improve physical ground plane more than the size of the original PCB ground unlike adding separate wires.
