Microstrip patch antenna has become very vital in communication system due to its attractive features such as its light weight, small size, low cost, low profile, ease of installation and its conformability to planar and non planar surfaces. When a particular mode and shape is selected MSA are also versatile in terms of resonant frequency, impedance, polarization and electromagnetic wave pattern. However MSA suffer from relatively narrow bandwidth .The consumers of these devices can enjoy diversity of shapes aesthetically pleasing to them without compromising the efficiency of the device. The antenna will be analysed using HFSS software to determine the characteristic of the designed MSA antenna, The results will be compared with the simulated data as well as data in the open literature. The prototype will be fabricated on PCB and tested in the laboratory. The aspect of bandwidth will be considered in this work.
