When a microstrip patch antenna is brought closer than 0.2λ to an identical patch the resonant frequency of that antenna changes from the designed frequency. In this paper numerical results for the resonant frequency are presented from a theoretical analysis of the mutually coupled H-plane microstrip patch antennas with confirming experimental results. We have also established the relation between resonant frequency of E-plane coupled and H-plane coupled microstrip patch antennas.
