A monopole triangular shaped, broadband, compact microstrip patch antenna with shorting pin is presented in this paper. By defecting the ground plane bandwidth of 38.7% with respect to center frequency of a microstrip patch antenna has been achieved which can be used for WLAN application. 82.4% size reduction has also been achieved by using shorting pin of a microstrip patch antenna with inset feed. The simulation is done by using the method of moment based commercially available standard software.
