Abstract : This report describes a microstrip antenna design according to which the resonant frequency can be substantially reduced for a given size radiator, or to which the size of the radiator can be reduced for a given resonant frequency. As will be seen, a microstrip antenna loading is accomplished through the removal of a central portion of the etched metal radiator, and the amount of loading is a function of the size of the central portion removed.
