In this work a rectangular microstrip patch antenna is designed on FR4 glass epoxy substrate having thickness 1.6 mm. The feeding technique used in the designed antenna is inset feed. The proposed antenna is designed for a frequency of 2.4 GHz. The various parameters of the antenna like return loss; gain, directivity, radiation pattern exc. are investigated. The relationship between geometric sizes of the patch and the electrical parameter specifications of the antenna is researched.
