In this paper designing of microstrip patch antenna has been done. Further to improve the results obtained from single layer patch stack arrangement has been done. This paper presents a stack arrangement of microstrip patch antenna to improve the bandwidth for communication. For this purpose IE3D software has been taken for experimental study. Planer designs are mostly preferred for these structures, due to their advantages of small size, low manufacturing cost and conformabilty. Microstrip patch antenna of 20mm×20 mm size is designed on a FR4 substrate of thickness 1.59mm and relative permittivity of 4.4 and mounted above the ground plate at a height of 6mm. A stack of size 18×18mm is fabricated with air gap between them. High Bandwidth is obtained with stable pattern characterization, such as gain and polarization within its bandwidth. Impedance matching is also observed for this case. Details of the measured and simulated results are presented and discussed in this paper.
