This paper presents a double layered slotted square patch microstrip patch antenna with a single probe feeding to the lower patch. An input impedance bandwidth of 6.1 GHz for VSWR < 2 has been obtained from the proposed antenna. This bandwidth is achieved by using five slots in the lower patch & two walls between the patches.
