This paper proposes a high gain microstrip antenna with circular polarization for LTE applications at a working frequency of 2300 MHz. Gain of antenna is optimized by using an array method with 4 elements arranged in plannar using feed line of 50 Ohm, 100 Ohm and 70.7 Ohm. The proposed antenna designed using FR-4 substrate with (ɛr) = 4.3, substrate thickness (h) of 1.6 mm and loss tangent (tan δ) of 0.0265. Gain of antenna can be optimized by increasing the number of elements in the array of the antenna. Circular polarization can be obtained by cutting the edge of a rectangular patch antenna with an angle of 45° . From the simulation results obtained reflection coefficient value of -20.02 dB and VSWR of 1.22 at the working frequency of 2300 MHz. The gain of proposed microstrip antenna is 10.56 dB with an impedance bandwidth value of 714 MHz (1925 - 2639 MHz). The proposed antenna obtained a circular polarization with axial ratio of 1.745 dB at working frequency of 2300 MHz. Array method with four elements increased the gain of antena until 45.07% compared to the single element antenna.
