Abstract

A compact and hexagon-shaped microstrip patch antenna operating in three bands is described in this paper. Multiband functionality of the antenna is achieved by adding two inclined strips and cutting modified slots on the radiating patch. The antenna consists of a hexagonal patch and partial ground plane, has the total dimensions of 15×17 ×1.6 mm3, operates over three frequencies 5.40 GHz, 6.76 GHz, and 8.82 GHz for WLAN, TV satellite broadcasting, WiMAX (5250-5850 MHz), IEEE 802.11a (5.47-5.725 GHz), 5G Unlicensed band (5.2-5.7 GHz), weather monitoring, and radar applications. This antenna has the novelty that it can also be used as a reconfigurable antenna, and the notched bands can be controlled. Simulation of the proposed antenna is carried out using HFSS-15 software. To verify the simulated results, and a prototype of the proposed antenna is fabricated. After measurement, simulated and measured results are in good agreement.
