A compact CPW-fed ultra-wideband monopole antennas with band notch characteristics using Split Ring Slots (SRSs) are proposed in this manuscript. Initially, the antenna is designed by using a rectangular shaped patch, and it has been modified to obtain enhanced impedance bandwidth (VSWR ≤ 2) throughout the entire UWB frequency range. Further, the notch band element (split ring slot) has been introduced in the geometry of proposed antenna to generate the band rejection at WLAN frequency centered at 5.3 GHz (5.15-5.81 GHz). Another antenna has been designed by varying the dimensions of SRS to get the rejection of frequency at an X-band satellite communication system centered at 7.4 GHz (7.16-7.71 GHz). The overall size of proposed UWB antennas is compact (18 × 18 mm2), and it is designed on a low cost FR4 glass epoxy substrate with 1.6 mm thickness and 4.4 dielectric constant. The proposed antennas with and without a notch filter are designed by using HFSS V13 simulator and fabricated for the validation of simulated results. Experimental and simulated results are compared and found in reasonable agreement with each other.
