In this paper, bandwidth enhancement of a conventional rectangular microstrip antenna using new kind of technique, so called Electromagnetic Band Gap (EBG) cells, is being discussed. This new technique, called Uniplanar Electromagnetic Band Gap (UC-EBG) cells is used to replace the commonly used ground plane of the conventional microstrip antenna (MSA). The conventional MSA showed a percentage bandwidth of 4.18%. After the replacement of the ground plane of the conventional MSA by the UC-EBG the bandwidth is increased greatly to 60.64 %.
