The design of rectangular microstrip antennas (RMA) is presented. The resonant frequency of a rectangular microstrip antenna is found as the frequency for which the current corresponding to a single hybrid radiation mode of microstrip line reaches maximum value. The finite transversal dimension of the antenna is taken into account by introducing a correcting term that depends on the effective dielectric constant of an equivalent microstrip line. Numerical results confirming the accuracy of the… CONTINUE READING
