For a circuit board, t and the dielectric are fixed, so you can get the result you want by changing the width of the line (W). Increasing W lowers the characteristic impedance Z0. Typically receivers have an impedance of 50 Ohms, and so if the antenna is designed to be 50 Ohms, the characteristic impedance you should be trying to obtain is 50 Ohms.
