The microwave dielectric properties and microstructures of the Complex Perovskite (1-x)$(Li_{1/2}Sm_{1/2})TiO_3-x (Na_{1/2}Sm_{1/2})TiO_3$(LNST) system were investigated using the X-ray diffraction (XRD) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). LNST had not only the antiphase tilting of oxygen octahedron but also the inphase tilting of oxygen octahedron and the antiparallel shift of cations. Also, when $0.0{\leq}x{\leq}0.4$, LNST had the vacancy ordering of A-sites because of the evaporation of Li ions. From the observation of the microstructure, abnormal grain growth phenomena were observed over the whole range of x. The temperature coefficient of resonant frequency ($T_{cf}$) of the $({Li_{1/2}}^{+1}{Sm_{1/2}}^{+3})TiO_3$(LST) system has a large negative value ($-220ppm/^{\circ}C$) but the $({Na_{1/2}}^{+1}{Sm_{1/2}}^{+3})TiO_3$(NST) system which substituted $Na^{+1}$ has a large positive value ($+173ppm/^{\circ}C$). The dielectric properties of ${\varepsilon}_r=103,\;Q*f_{0}=3,700GHz$ and $T_{cf}=+50ppm/^{\circ}C$ at 4GHz were obtained when x =0.4.
