A multipatch configuration of probe-fed rectangular microstrip antennas mounted on a cylindrical body, with electrically small radius, with an arbitrary number of substrate and superstrate layers is investigated in this paper. A full-wave analysis and a moment-method calculation are employed. A unified procedure for creating proper matrices for the investigated geometry of the structure is outlined here. Numerical results for the input impedances and radiation patterns are calculated and verified by comparing them with results from the literature and our own measurements of manufactured prototypes.
