In this paper, the methodology to reduce the mutual coupling using inductive loading is proposed which is achieved by the use of shorting pins placed in between the patch and the ground plane. The performance improvement can be seen in the result, and the side lobe levels are reduced using the Gaussian and Rayleigh functions, according to which the antenna weights are designed in the proposed 1x7 array.
