In this paper, a compact design of inset-fed multiband antenna acceptable for GPS, 2.4 WLAN and X-band satellite communication applications is presented. The proposed antenna consists of rectangular radiating patch which is fed by 50Ω inset-feed line. The antenna structure is printed on FR-4 substrate and has dimensions of 40 × 30 × 1.6 mmincluding ground plane. To obtain a multiband operation, a rectangular loop slot is inserted at the middle of the radiating patch. The proposed antenna adequately covers the GPS (1.57 GHz), WLAN (2.4-2.484) and X-band lower satellite communication (6-6.5 GHz) applications. The results indicates that the proposed antenna shows a broadside radiation characteristics at three distinct frequency bands of 1.6, 2.4 and 6.2 GHz. Owing to its simple geometry and its radiation characteristics, it is highly recommendable for applications in GPS, WLAN, X-band satellite communication systems.
