Compact microstrip-fed printed monopole antenna with triple band-notched characteristics is suggested for ultra-wideband (UWB) applications. The antenna is constructed of a conventional rectangular microstrip patch antenna with partial ground plane and T-shaped strip employed in the ground plane as well as an inverted Ω- and L-shaped slots incorporated within the radiated element. The notched functions are created by the inverted Ω- and L-shaped slots, which are realized for WiMAX (from 2.69 to 4.5 GHz) and WLAN (from 5.49 to 6.37 GHz). The T-shaped parasitic strip generates the third notch for the X-band uplink satellite communication (from 8.15 to 9.61 GHz). The measured operating -10 dB bandwidth of the proposed antenna extends from 2.39 to more than 18 GHz except at the notched bands. The prototype antenna has a total area of 20×20×1.6 mm3. Electromagnetic (EM) simulations are carried out using 3D full-wave FEM-based simulator. EM simulation results are in good agreement with measurement results. The radiation pattern of the proposed antenna is nearly Omni-directional over the whole targeted band.
