In this paper, the authors have Investigated various meandering techniques for obtaining compact and broadband patch antenna. They have designed a slit-loaded notch-cut patch antenna based on investigations. The antenna patch is fed by coaxial feed. Meandering techniques and the new design are simulated in HFSS environment. Results show good return loss for new design. Because of developing needs for portable communication devices, microstrip patch antenna has been noted in last decays. Specially it has characteristics such as low profile and low-cost fabrication.
