Abstract

In this present paper a two rectangular slot is cut in rectangular Microstrip patch antenna. The proposed antenna has been designed on glass epoxy substrate to achieve dual wide bandwidth of 10.69% and 51.18% covering the range from 1.204-1.34 GHz and 1.653-2.79 GHz. This frequency band is suitable for WLAN/WiMAX and other wireless communication applications. The Microstrip antenna suffers from narrow bandwidth hence the present work provide an alternative solution to increase the bandwidth. The gain has been improved up to 4.98dBi and antenna efficiency is 99.85%. The proposed slot loaded Microstrip antenna is fed by line feed. The proposed antenna is simulated by IE3D Zealand simulation software based on method of moments. The result yields that obtained antenna have resonance near at 1.8 GHz and it also shows remarkable improvement over Fractional Bandwidth.
