Abstract

Closed-form expressions for the input impedance of halfwavelength rectangular microstrip antennas fed by coaxial connectors of different sizes at any point on any one of the non-radiating edges and open-circuited at the other ends are derived. Good agreement between computed and measured data is obtained.
