Abstract : This report is related to twin electric microstrip dipole antennas consisting of thin electrically conducting rectangular shape elements formed on both sides of a dielectric substrate. In these antennas the element on one side of the substrate is the mirror image of the element on the other side of the substrate. Each of the elements act, in effect, as a ground plane for the other. The thickness of the substrate to a large extent determines the bandwidth of the antenna and the length of the conducting elements on both sides of the substrate determines the resonant frequency.
