The moment method is used to solve the integral equations describing the capacitively fed rectangular microstrip antenna element. This element consists of a ground plane, a radiating patch, and a small patch located between ground plane and radiating patch. The small patch is fed by a coaxial probe. It excites the radiating patch through capacitive coupling. After checking the accuracy by comparing calculated and measured results, the effect of the capacitor patch is analyzed theoretically. A procedure is given to determine capacitor patches which yield elements matched to the coaxial feed. It is shown how a matched configuration can be found for a given capacitor patch height
