Broadband suspended microstrip antenna on thicker substrate is realized by using non-contact L-probe feeding technique. The guidelines for selecting total L-probe length are not available in the reported literature. In this paper, an analysis of broadband L-probe fed variations of microstrip antenna like, circular microstrip antenna, annular ring microstrip antenna, rectangular microstrip antenna, E-shaped microstrip antenna and half E-shaped microstrip antenna, is presented. It was observed that, total L-probe feed length nearly equals quarter wavelength at the resonance frequency of equivalent patch.
