Compare the gain (in dB) of the requested far field patterns on a polar plot.

Figure 1. A polar plot of the requested E plane radiation pattern for the microstrip patch models in POSTFEKO.
Note: Observe the impact of the different feeding mechanisms on the radiation pattern.
The best design for manufacturability (DFM) is the models using the finite ground. The finite ground solution results in a considerably longer simulation time in comparison to the infinite plane solution.
