Irregular Hexagonal shaped antenna for UWB Applications

2019 International journal of recent technology and engineering  
This paper presents the design of a microstrip line fed irregular hexagonal shaped monopole antenna. The antenna consists of a sliced semi-circular ground plane with a square slit below the feed line which exhibits an Ultra Wide Band (UWB) of 7.5GHz. A frequency notch band (5.1GHz – 5.57GHz) is obtained by introducing 'U' shaped slot on to the proposed antenna. The proposed monopole is fabricated, measured for reflection coefficient, radiation pattern and peak gain to validate the performance
