Microstrip antennas contain one dielectric substrate in its basic form. Properties of the substrate play a vital role in design of microstrip antennas. Therefore, understanding the impact of the substrate is important to the antenna research community. This paper analyzes the relationship between substrate properties and patch dimensions by designing numerous rectangular-shaped microstrip antennas working at different resonant frequencies.
