In this paper, new fork shaped microstrip patch antenna is designed to be operated in X-band and is used in applications like radar and in satellite communications. The dimensions of the ground plane, substrate and patch are (40x40)mm, (40x40)mm and (20x20)mm respectively. Copper annealed is used as the ground plane and also as the patch, the substrate is FR4 (lossy) material. The proposed antenna has the return loss of -34.064083dB, -27.912185dB and -24.539951dB at the operating frequencies of 11.352GHz, 10.04GHZ and 8.4682GHz respectively.
