An innovative water dense dielectric patch antenna fed by L-probe is proposed and investigated. The operation mechanism of the water DDPA perform similar to the conventional rectangular metallic patch antenna operated in the fundamental TM 10 mode. An L-shape probe is used to excite water DDPA in order to observe bandwidth performance of antenna by selecting the thick high relative permittivity supporting substrate in between the ground plane and the water patch. The water DDPA operated at 1. 025 GHz exhibit maximum impedance bandwidth of 11. 38%, maximum gain of 7. 76 dBi, radiation efficiency up to 70% and symmetrically unidirectional radiation pattern with low backlobe and low cross polarization level. Performance of this DDPA is observed with different dimensions and patch material (normal and distilled water), simulated results are investigated.
