The design and analysis of a series-fed, low-loss, inverted microstrip array antenna, operating at 1.413 GHz is presented, Thr array antenna is composed of two subarrays consisting of an equal number of microstrip patches connected together through a series microstrip line. The subarrays are coaxially fed 180 degrees out of phase, This approach ensures a symmetric radiation pattern. The design approach for obtaining: a low sidelobe ratio and a low loss microstrip array Is accomplished using the IE3D code. Experimental and simulated data are presented and discussed.
