Microstrip antennas are very popular in recent decades due to its small size, low cost, light weight, and easy fabrication. This antenna has many useful characteristics like thin profile, both linear and circular polarization, dual frequency operation possible, and with any shape. It has several applications in wireless communication, in telemedicine, in mobile communication. iHowever, the itypes of applicationsi of microstrip antennas are restrictedi by the antennasi inherently low gain and narrowi bandwidthi. Accordingly, iincreasing the gain and bandwidth of the microstrip antenna has been a main goali of researchi in the fieldi. Aim of this paper is to increase gain of microstrip antenna. So, made some changes in different parameters of microstrip antenna like patch length, width or substrate size and gain and efficiency are observed.
