A method for finding the electric field distribution of microstrip line fed H-slots is described. A transverse resonance technique is first applied to find a second-order approximation of the slot propagation constant, which is then used in the transmission line model for the H-slot. The proposed model for the field distribution can be applied to the transmission line and cavity model analysis of H-slot coupled microstrip antennas
