Abstract
In this paper, a new monopole compact antenna with tunable frequency fed by a coplanar waveguide (CPW) for WiMAX, WLAN, LTE bands, and X-band satellite communication system is presented. This is achieved by adequate combination of a new radiating patch element along with slots and switches. The simulation and measurement results show that depending on ON/OFF states, the proposed reconfigurable antenna, printed on an FR4 substrate, can operate in four applicable frequency bands, i.e., [2.37-2.75 GHz], [3.15-4.08 GHz], [4.48-5.92 GHz], and [6.69-8.31 GHz]. Very interesting results for the reflection coefficient, current distribution, and radiation pattern of the antenna are presented and discussed. The measured results are in good agreement with the simulated ones.
