Abstract—A rectangular microstrip patch antenna is presented in this paper for Ku-band satellite communication applications. The proposed E-shaped patch antenna is designed to cover various applications such as broadcasting, remote sensing and space communication. To include the effect of high frequency in the procedure, the concept of microstrip-based Cole-Cole diagram is adopted to create a frequency-dependent (lossy) characteristic impedance. The simple method proposed in this research is compatible with Computer Aided Design (CAD) and hence, design of microstrip antenna for Ku Band satellite from this research will be fast and easy to implement.

Index Terms—Microstrip antenna, ku-band, e-shaped, frequency-dependent, CAD.
