Circularly Polarized (CP) antennas are becoming increasingly popular for wireless applications. This paper describes design and simulation of circularly polarized slot patch antenna for C-band applications. Cband has frequency range from 4 to 8 GHz that is used for satellite communication transmissions, some Wi-Fi devices, and cordless telephone. For circular polarization, the axial ratio (AR) less than 3 dB can be produced by inserting a rectangular stub from the ground plane towards the

Simulated results show that the antenna attains an S11 < -10 dB, return loss bandwidth from (4 GHz to 8GHz) and the axial ratio bandwidth from (4.5GHz to 7.3GHz). The proposed micro-strip slot patch antenna is connected by 50Ω micro-strip feed line and it has been fabricated on FR4 Substrate.
