The need for the development of wideband microstrip antenna has been very well recognized. The present-day researchers are focused on developing novel design of microstrip antenna which would provide a good wideband. In this paper, the geometry of a microstrip antenna has taken to be square and feeding method also changed which is responsible for broadband. The antenna is fed with microstrip line by keeping a stub at source junction. It is  done to improve the impendence bandwidth by the width of the structure of feedline adjustment is performed. This paper presents the study of a compact square antenna to operate in the frequency range of X-band from 8 to 12 GHz. The prototype planer antenna exhibits an overall wideband of bandwidth 560 MHz with a good reflection coefficient of −25 dB. This type of antenna is very useful in many broadband applications in X-band.
