In this paper, the authors report a design of a wide band MicroStrip Patch Antenna (MSPA) for L frequency band. The results reported here were obtained using a full wave finite element computer simulation of the antenna with Ansoft HFSS software. The antenna uses a stacked dielectric layer structure and has desired wide bandwidth. In the design of the wide band antenna feed position of the coaxial connector probe, widths of triangular patch and height of a foam layer in the multilayer were varied and optimized to achieve desired performance for the antenna. A 10-dB bandwidth of 16% was achieved for the antenna in the L band.
