Abstract

Rectangular microstrip patch antenna (RMPA) is a simple antenna, light, and easily to integrate in the system. This paper discusses RMPA design for working on the frequency of 1.8 GHz by using a FR4 substrate with relative permittivity of 4.4 and thickness of 1.6 mm. The optimal of RMPA is assisted by AWR simulator. Based on measurement result, the designed RMPA has VSWR minimum of 1.03 on 1.84 GHz frequency. It has bandwidth of 43 MHz (1.818 - 1.861 GHz) for VSWR<2. The gain is 4.39 dB.
