A novel microstrip antenna with wide bandwidth is presented. Two different radiating elements connected together through a matched section and are embedded on a single layer structure. This new structure offers a dual-band microstrip antenna. By controlling the two resonance frequencies of the two elements, a wide frequency bandwidth of approximately 9% has been achieved. A more bandwidth enhancement, up to 12%, has been achieved by adding two parasitic elements to one element of the proposed antenna. Fabrication and measurement of S11 for the proposed antenna has been done. The measured results have been compared with the simulated results using commercial software HFSS version-8.0.
