This paper presents a dual-band microstrip antenna for Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) and Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX) applications. The split ring resonators structure driven antenna operates at 900 MHz and 3.3 GHz, respectively. Return losses achieved at the two resonance frequencies are 22.26 dB and 18.97 dB, respectively. The proposed antenna is developed on a cost-effective FR-4 substrate with relative permittivity 4.4, tangent loss 0.002, and partial ground plane. The bandwidths of the proposed antenna are 3.01% and 4.26%, respectively. The design and fabrication procedure along with both simulated and measured results are presented and discussed in this paper. Designed antenna delivers good performance and solution for both applications.
