The propagation characteristics of the rectangular microstrip patch antenna on metamaterial substrate are determined via full wave method, Transverse Transmission Line – TTL. Compared to other full wave methods, the TTL is an efficient tool to determine the resonant frequency, making possible a significant algebraic simplification of the equations involved in the process. Numerical results of resonant frequencies are found as functions of the metamaterial properties.
