In this paper, a meander-type microstrip patch antenna for application in 5 GHz-band is designed and fabricated. To obtain enough bandwidth in VSWR<2, the foam is inserted between substrate and ground plane, the coaxial probe source is used. The measured result of fabricated antenna is obtained 1 GHz (17.5%) of bandwidth in VSWR<2, the gain of 7.3-9.5 dBi and unidirectional pattern.
