A folded shorting wall was introduced to the antenna structure to take the place of the pair of shorting pin and shorting wall and achieve bandwidth enhancement. The effect of the shorting technique for a quarter-wave patch was studied and a modified patch shape and shorting wall were discussed. A stable gain of 5.5dBi was obtained over the matching bandwidth with the folded shorting wall. It was shown that a folded shorting wall, a suitable patch geometry appears to be a better bandwidth enhancement technique than the previous method of utilizing a pair of shorting wall and shorting pin.
