A novel rectangular microstrip antenna for ultrawideband applications is proposed. The ultrawide frequency response is achieved by determining the dimensions of the radiating patch of antenna .The simulated reflection coefficient is smaller than -10 dB for fractional bandwidth greater than 20%. The fractional bandwidth is further enhanced by providing improvements in the proposed design. Besides a directive radiation pattern, high efficiency and a constant gain is achieved in the operating bandwidth.
