In this paper, an internal integrated microstrop patch for PCS handset is designed. To increase the bandwidth of microstrip patch antenna, a configuration of stacked type using parasitic element is used. Furthermore, to reduce the size of microstirip patch antenna, the main radiator in the substrate is shorted to the ground plane using five shorting-posts while three parasitic elements on the superstrate are also shorted to the ground plane using two shorting-posts respectively. The antenna bandwidth and radiation characteristics are calculated by HFSS 7.0 software, and compared with the experimental results. Experimental results show that the return loss is less than -10dB over the band of 1766MHz to 1900 MHz(134MHz) and the size of the fabricated microstrip patch antenna are $23\times20\times6.35mm$.
