A Rectangular Micristrip Patch antenna with inset fed technique for personal communication services application is presented. The proposed antenna can create resonance at 1.9 GHz. Dielectric material of ?r=2.3 and height of h=1.6mm is used for antenna construction. Transmission line model is proposed for antenna dimensions calculation, and fabrication is done using photolithographic technique. Simulation is performed with the help of Advanced Design system (ADS) software and is excited with a 50? Microstrip line using inset feed technique. Fabricated antenna is tested with Network Analyzer to measure VSWR, S11 parameter and in Anechoic Chamber antenna parameters like gain, beamwidth are measured. Radiation patterns for vertical and horizontal planes in azimuthal plane are also drawn. Measured values are compared with simulated values and are discussed.
