This paper presents the design of a dual band rectangular Dielectric Resonator Antenna (DRA) coupled to narrow slot aperture that is fed by microstrip line. The fundamental TE 111 mode and higher-order TE 113 mode are excited with their resonant frequencies respectively. These frequencies can be controlled by changing the DRA dimensions. A dielectric resonator with high permittivity is used to miniaturize the global structure. The proposed antenna is designed to have dual band operation
