In this paper, the authors present a novel design of partial ground plane rectangular microstrip antenna for dual band operation. The magnitude of each operating band is found to be 95% and 15.57%. This dual band can be converted into triple bands by placing a stub along the width of the rectangular patch on the right side from the microstripline. The magnitudes of triple bands are found to be 105%, 13.57% and 17.46%. However, the triple bands can be converted into dual bands by placing two stubs simultaneously along the width of the rectangular patch on left and right side of microstripline.
