This paper describes the increment in Bandwidth and Gain of Rectangular Microstrip Patch antenna with Shifted Elliptical slot. First the authors have designed a Rectangular microstrip patch antenna. After that an elliptical slot is cut inside a rectangular patch which is shifted towards right. The results of both the designs are compared and it was found that an increase in the bandwidth of 21% and gain of 7.21 dBi is being achieved as that of a simple Rectangular microstrip patch antenna. Microstrip patch antenna is designed on a Duroid 5880 substrate with a dielectric constant of 2.2. The antenna is fed by a coaxial probe feed.
