Suitable Design of Single Layer Hexagonal Microstrip Patch Antenna for Terrestrial Communication & Networking
Pages : 844-849
A suitable single layer hexagonal microstrip patch antenna is thoroughly simulated in this paper. First we have designed a rectangular microstrip patch antenna. After that resonant frequency has been reduced drastically by cutting two equal slots which are the combinations of two triangular and one rectangular slot at the upper right and lower left corner located from the conventional microstrip patch antenna. Compared to a conventional microstrip patch antenna, simulated antenna size has been reduced by 52.64% with an increased frequency ratio. The antenna designs and performances are analyzed using Zealand IE3D software. The antenna can be used for many future communication systems.
