The effect of proximity and aperture coupling on the resonance behavior of the microstrip antenna is presented. With proximity coupling the antenna resonates with two bands having bandwidths of 16.75% and 35.58%.When the same antenna is fed by aperture coupling, three bands occur with bandwidths of 44.3%, 4.75% and 53.43%. Further when the H-slot is replaced with a dumbbell slot all the three bands merge to give single band of 91.43% with a peak gain of 10.23dB while retaining the broadside radiation characteristics. The design concept is presented and experimental results discussed.
