In this paper, a modified bowtie microstrip patch antenna is designed and simulated by using software HFSS (High Frequency Structure Simulator) software. This modified antenna is first designed and simulated and then further analyzed for various parameters like return loss, VSWR, radiation pattern, gain etc. In this paper, for simulation purpose the authors have used ArlonCuClad 217 (tm) as dielectric material. They have modified the basic bowtie antenna by doing some modification in its structure i.e. on its arms. In simulation result they have achieved return loss below -10 dB. This simulated antenna has broad application in the field of satellite communication.
