In this paper, MoM based IE3D software is used to design a Microstrip patch antenna with enhanced gain and bandwidth. Patch antenna is realized as per design requirements. Desired patch antenna design is simulated by using IE3D simulator. A wideband U and phi-shape Microstrip patch antennas have been designed. The return loss is below -14dB and 9dB gain from 4.5GHz to 5GHz with a bandwidth of 14% and 90-97.5% efficiency. The return loss is below -10dB and 8.6dB gain from 5.5GHz to 7.7GHz with a bandwidth of 35.8% and 70-92% efficiency respectively. Antennas are thin and compact which makes it easily portable.
