A design of microstrip patch antenna gap coupled with two parasitic elements on its non-radiating edges and a single parasitic element on its radiating edge for the operation in X band and Ku band is proposed here. The parasitic elements are partially shorted. This design is giving an impedance bandwidth of 4.967GHz. This antenna is operating over a frequency range of 11.2334 to 16.0431 GHz with centre frequency at 14.3 GHz. The design is simulated by using the MOM based IE3D software.
