Abstract: Small size wideband microstrip patch antenna with slot in ground plane and stacked patch fed through microstrip line is presented. By inserting slot on ground plane and stacked patch supported by wall, the bandwidth can improve up to 25% without significant change in the frequency. The bandwidth before adding the slot and the stacked patch was 3.72%, whereas after adding the slot and the stacked patch the bandwidth increased up to 25% ranging from 2.45 to 3.3 GHz. The radiation pattern has acceptable response at both E-plane and H-plane. The ground plane size is 30 mm by 90 mm, the antenna designed is based on Roger RT/duroid 5880 with dielectric constant 2.2
