In this paper, a design strategy to achieve bandwidths in excess of 25% for probe-fed stacked patches is presented. The choice of appropriate dielectric materials for such bandwidths is given and the role of each antenna parameter in controlling the impedance behavior is provided. It has been found that the selection of the substrate below the lower patch plays a major role in producing broad-band responses. A simple design procedure is outlined and this technique is verified experimentally. The findings presented here can be applied to all types of probe-fed stacked patches as well as edge-fed and cavity-backed configurations
