In this paper, the authors present design, simulation and comparison of microstrip patch antenna designed using different feed techniques. The microstrip feed techniques are microstrip line feed, inset feed, coaxial feed, aperture coupled feed and proximity coupled feed. They are chosen to compare co-axial feed and microstrip line feed due to the advantage that it can be easily fabricated and simplicity in modelling as well as impedance matching. The microstrip patch antenna is designed and simulated using high frequency simulation software FEKO and it is designed to operate in X-band frequency range (8GHz-12GHz).
