Microstrip antenna has huge potential to meet the ongoing demand for wireless communication. Low conventional bandwidth of it hinders its use. Out of many ways of increasing the bandwidth, one of the simplest ways is the proper dimension and position of the feedline. A proper value has insightful effect in bandwidth enhancement by proper impedance matching. This chapter put some insight into it for a particular rectangular antenna at X band. The simulations are conducted using HFSS. A considerable improvement by this simple way has been noticed.
