Summary: 
In this letter, we propose an approximate calculation formula for the resonant frequency of a microstrip antenna with meshed ground plane, which is derived by perturbational technique and is expressed by a simple closed form. The calculated results are in good agreement with FDTD-calculated and measured ones. Therefore, it is confirmed that the proposed formula is valid for approximate evaluation of the resonant frequency of microstrip antenna with meshed ground plane.
