LTE is the latest step in the telecommunication development. The expansion of LTE is largely due to the success of the high-speed packet access and the overgrowing need for capacity. A dual band microstrip patch array antenna for LTE applications in Malaysia has been proposed. Firstly, a single element antenna is designed to resonate at 1.8GHz and 2.6GHz, and the dimensions were calculated using transmission line model. Then, to achieve higher directivity, antenna arrays with two and four number of elements have been applied. A microstrip feed line with 3dB divider is used to feed each of the elements. Simulations are been carried out using CST Microwave Studio. Subsequently, simulation results are compared and analyzed. From the results, the 4 x 1 array antenna configuration has shown the best results with directivity of 11.2dB and 12.9dB at 1.8GHz and 2.6GHz respectively.
