The antenna required for wideband communication should be light weight, low-cost, small size. The present scenario researchers are aim to developing novel design of microstrip antenna which would provide a good broadband. The paper presents an idea of the design of bandwidth improvement microstrip antenna offering wideband is presented. The antenna is fed with microstrip line. The technique for the bandwidth improvement is done varying the height of the substrate from 1.0mm to 2.0mm. This design of the antenna in the paper is propose to operate in the frequency range of X-band from 8 to 12 GHz. The prototype planer antenna is exhibiting an overall wideband of bandwidth 2.2 GHz with reflection coefficient of -37 dB. This type of antenna is very useful in many broadband applications in X- band.
