Microstrip patch antennas are the popular antennas due to their low profile, conformable, easy, inexpensive and versatile in terms of realization and are thus been widely used in a various useful applications. In this paper, an I-shaped microstrip patch antenna is being designed for L-band with an operating frequency of 1.5GHz using the substrate material Flame Retardant 4, FR-4 lossy having the dielectric constant of 4.3. The parameters such as return loss, efficiency and directivity of the design are simulated and analyzed using Computer Simulation Technology (CST) Microwave Studio.
