The selection of a substrate material is a balance between the required electrical, mechanical, and environmental performance required by a design versus economic constraints. Generally, if one has the available design volume to use air as a substrate for a microstrip antenna, this is a good choice. The antenna efficiency is high and the gain is maximized, as is the impedance bandwidth of a conventional microstrip antenna. The surface wave loss when air is used as a substrate is minimal.
