The major disadvantage of microstrip antennas is its low gain and the rectangular or circular patch antennas do not have an endfire radiation. In this paper a design of microstrip antenna with four circular patches is presented. The model when simulated produces an endfire radiation and hence the gain can be increased in a particular direction. The proposed model is simulated using Ansoft HFSS software and various antenna parameters are measured. The antenna works at 5GHz where applications like synthetic aperture radar (SAR) are operated.
