In this paper, the authors present the design and development of simple Rectangular monopole Microstrip Antenna (RMA) for wideband operation. The proposed antenna operates from 1.54 to 4.62GHz and gives an impedance bandwidth of 100% which is 32.46 times more than the impedance bandwidth of Conventional Rectangular Microstrip Antenna (CRMA). The RMA has been realized from CRMA by modifying the microstripline feed of CRMA which further simplifies the geometry of RMA. The peak gain of RMA in its operating band is found to be 7.08 dB which is 3.35 times more than the peak gain of CRMA.
