In this paper, a design and analysis of Microstrip patch is presented. The proposed antenna has simple structure with U-slot operating for the application of Amateur radio. The overall dimension of the antenna comes around 16.22mm×20.62mm×2.15mm. The impedance matching and radiation characteristics of the designed structure are investigated by using MOM based commercially available electromagnetic solver IE3D. The simulation results show that the antenna offers excellent performance for Amateur radio application ranging from 5.65-5.85 GHz with return loss of below -10 dB . The proposed antenna gives directional pattern in the E plane and Omni directional radiation pattern in the H plane over the frequency range and relatively stable.
