A novel broadband design for a circular microstrip antenna with reactive loading integrated within the circular patch is proposed and studied. The reactive loading is provided by a microstrip structure of cascaded microstrip-line sections embedded inside a slot cut in the circular patch. The proposed broadband design has been implemented, and the experimental study shows that an antenna bandwidth ~3.2 times that of a conventional circular microstrip antenna can be obtained. Details of the proposed design are described, and experimental results of the antenna performance are presented and discussed
