In this paper, the authors' aim is to design an Electromagnetic Gap Coupled Trapezoidal Shaped Microstrip Patch Antenna (GCTSMPA) which is suitable for Microwave S-band applications. This antenna offers much improved impedance bandwidth 20%. The proposed antenna has achieved a suitable gain of 3.90 dBi and 0.99 dBi at resonating frequencies 3.59GHz and 4.10 GHz respectively. Other antenna parameters such as antenna input impedance, the Voltage Standing Wave Ratio (VSWR), return loss, gain and bandwidth are simulated for the proposed antenna.
