A center-fed circular microstrip patch antenna with a coupled annular ring is presented. This antenna has a low profile configuration with a monopole like radiation pattern. Compared to the center-fed circular patch antenna (CPA), the proposed antenna has a large bandwidth and similar radiation pattern. The proposed antenna is fabricated and tested. It resonates at 5.8 GHz, the corresponding impedance bandwidth and gain are 12.8% and 5.7 dBi, respectively. Very good agreement between the measurement and simulation for the return loss and radiation patterns is achieved.
