Figure11: Radiation Pattern of the Antenna
The gap coupled annular ring microstrip antenna is designed and various parameters like input impedance, VSWR, return loss and radiation pattern are calculated using CST software. The proposed antenna exhibits dual frequency bands (return loss less than -10db) with impedance bandwidth of 4.8% for lower band (5.07-5.32 GHz) and 2.13% for higher band (6.05-6.18 GHz).
